Over the past few months, our candles jar have been gradually transitioning to a sublime new whitewashed container. We were looking for a breath of fresh air, but more importantly, a reusable jar that we would like to keep close by, even after burning our favorite candle.
We thought we'd share with you our two favorite tips for removing the wax from the bottom of your container and reusing it later. I promise, it's super simple (!!!)
Tip #1 - Boiling Water: Simply boil water in a pot or kettle, then pour the hot water directly into the candle jar over the wax. You should see the wax slowly melt & rise above the water slowly. Let it sit for a few minutes, then you'll be able to remove the little patty of wax floating on the water.
Tip #2 - Freezer: Just as simple, place your almost empty container in the freezer for at least a few hours (overnight, ideally). Then, insert a butter knife or spoon on the side of the wax on the edges of the glass. You should be able to remove the wax layer easily if it's still cold.
Then, simply clean your container in the sink with warm water & mild dish soap. You now have a beautiful little jar that will complement any decor. Here are some of our favorite uses:
Plant pot － We have a few plant enthusiasts & our candle containers are in our opinion the perfect pot for your sprouts!
Matches pot － Just because it's beautiful!
Candy & Snack Jar －Looking for a little secret stash for your sweets? Your kids won't think to look in your old candle jars, promise!
Glasses － If you still have candles in our old clear glass containers, we think they make great glass for your coffee or even cocktail!
We remind you that our new candle jars are recyclable & that their wooden lid can be used as a coaster to protect your surfaces!
If you're the more visual type, we show you all these great ideas in a video right here (!!!)
Looking forward to seeing our small containers of candles reused in your Houses!
