Today we are talking about cleaning & re-using your candle jars. We ❤️ to re-use and recycle to reduce waste, so these are great ways to make sure your jars don’t end up in the landfill.
Our beautiful candle jars are also heavy based whiskey tumblers! So you can clean them and use them as glassware, as small planters, vases, storage for makeup brushes, toothbrushes, pencils, etc.
First, you’ll need to clean them. Use a knife or spoon to scrape out the excess wax. Then fill the jar with hot water & dish soap and scrub the rest out. Our wax is soft & natural and therefore has a low melting point, making is easy to wash.
Next, remove the wick holder. Slip a knife underneath and pop it off. This should be easy after the heat of the water. Now peel off the labels and use rubbing alcohol to remove any sticky residue. That’s it! Now you have a beautiful, reusable glass jar!
