Today I wanted to share with you a little idea of how you can reuse your old candle jars. I love burning scented candles, particularly at the time of year and I think it is a waste to throw away (or recycle) the glass jars when the candle has finished, so I decided to clean some out and use them to store things in, like makeup brushes and lip glosses or anything that fits really :)
To get the left over wax out, I put boiling water in the sink and sat the candle jars in it. The wax soon becomes soft around the edges and then you can just lift it out with a knife or something similar. To get any little bits of left over wax off I washed them with hot water and washing up liquid with washing up sponge and used a knife to get off any really stubborn last bits of wax.
I kept the leftover wax and may melt it all together when I have more and use it to make a candle. You can get wicks from eBay really cheap :)
I am hoping I finish burning some more candles soon so I can reuse some more.
Let me know if you found this useful.
Thanks for reading :)
