Every time I share these empty jars of candles on Instagram, I always get questions asking me how to clean them so I thought I’d share this post. I love repurposing things – especially when they’re this aesthetically pleasing! It’s fun to see my favorite candle jars sitting out on my dresser, vanity, or bathroom counter rather than a boring cup or glass.
How To Clean Your Candles
Wait until your candle is almost done, but not to the point where you can see any glass at the bottom.
Pop it into the freezer for about an hour or two.
Take a spoon and crack the frozen wax, it should come up in 1-2 thick pieces.
Wash the remaining residue with warm soapy water.
So easy right?! You can also use the jars as drinking glasses (once thoroughly washed and sans label). Or vases for flowers around your apartment. I use an old Diptqyue 34 candle as a vase on my living room table and love the way it looks as opposed to a clear vase.
