How to remove wax from your candle jar.

How to remove wax from your candle jar.

So your beautiful candle is done and you want to re-use or recycle your candle jar. How do you get that last bit of wax and wick out?

Well it's easier than you think. 

Fill the jar with boiling water to melt the wax.

Give it a stir to release the wick and sticky label.

Leave to cool.

Once the wax is completely cooled it will have hardened and risen to the top of the jar.

Remove and dispose of appropriately. 

Voila! A lovely amber glass jar for storing bits and bobs. Or you can return it to us and receive £1 off your next purchase.
