I’m not saying we have a candle problem in my house. I’m just saying I have a lot of opportunity to reuse the glass jars that once housed candles.
Of course, each requires cleaning prior to use because for some reason, the candle does actually burn all the way to the bottom. Usually, we are left with a bit of wax.
My son prefers to gouge out the wax with a knife then finish it off in a wax burner.
I try to catch the candle before the wick goes out and pour the remaining wax into a holder for use in a wax burner or to store in my car as an air freshener. Either way, the glass holder gets warmed in the oven, then the melted wax is wiped away.
Then they are ready to accept the items for storage. Best part, the scent of the candle lingers for a while and infuses the items inside.
Until next time, stay healthy.
