Cleaning Vessels

After you have enjoyed your candle it's a good idea to clean your vessel  so you can enjoy it further. All of our vessels are designed to be reused in some creative fashion. They can become planters, trinket jars or desk accessories . It's such a rewarding feeling knowing that you have have saved  an item from  a landfill. 

Freezer Method:

Place your finished candle in the freezer overnight or until it is frozen. Use a knife to carve out remaining wax. Use a paper towel with warm water to wipe out any leftover wax from the inside of the jar.

Boiling Method:

If you are having a hard time getting the wax out of your candle jar, then this method will work the best for you! Boil water, carefully pour into the jar, and gently stir the boiling water in the jar. Stir until the wax has melted from the sides of the vessel. Allow the water to cool, throw out the wax, and drain the leftover water. Finish off by washing the jar with warm water and soap, and wiping away any leftover wax.

Oven Method:

If you have multiple jars you would like to repurpose, then this method is fast and easy! Carve out as much wax as you can using a knife. Heat your oven to 180 degrees and place a double layer of tinfoil on a baking pan. Place the candles on the baking pan and let them heat in the oven for 15 minutes. The wax will melt so you can pour it into a napkin and put it into the trash. Carefully grab the warm vessel with a thick towel and wipe away any wax residue with a paper towel. Allow the vessels to cool down then clean them out with warm water and soap, wiping away any leftover wax.
