For this project you will need:
- Candle jars
- Kettle ( for your boiling hot water.)
- Dawn Soap (Any Dish Washing Liquids)
- Screw driver or Old Knife
This is by far the easiest way to clean your candle jars with the items that you have right there in your kitchen or home.
If you have candle wax in the jar just use an old knife or screw driver to pull it out. I take the screw driver and put holes at the bottom between the candle wax and the glass. Then I use hot boiling water from the kettle to soak inside the glass. Depending on how much wax is in the jar. The wax will just float up to the top of the jar.
Let the water cool down ( for about 15-20 minutes) before pulling the wax out. Once the wax is out pour hot boiling water in the jar to clean off the entire residue inside of the jar. The hot water just pulls the wax right up off the glass. Also, take your screw driver to get the candle plate out of the bottle of the glass if it does not come up with the hot water.
Then use some dish washing liquid to clean the jars and pull the labels right off while they are wet.
Now you have clean candle jars ready to use for some type of storage. Check out my post on how to turn your old candles containers into great bath storage holders.
