Clean and Re Purpose Candle Holders

48K Views
I love to recycle when I can, so all these used candle holders I had on hand were waiting to be cleaned and reused. Visit our blog for a step by step easy way to remove the wax and metal wick holder.
ETA: My tip is for store bought candle jars already filled with wax. After reading SEVERAL comments of popping it into the freezer, I tried it. I couldn't get the little metal tab out at the bottom. It took some very hot water to loosen the glue to remove it.

    I start doing that with the candle holders and gift it to my friends as a present. They like it and start recycling the candle holder to do the same. It's awesome!👍🏻

    I am a "candle freak", have candles going all over the house all year long. I have found to use a paper towel with some cooking oil on it and rub it on the bottom and part way up the candle holder before adding the votive candles. Also spraying lightly with cooking spray works well. The candles, when melted, come right out with a bit of coaxing from a screwdriver. No messy candle wax to contend with. They then go into the dishwasher coming out squeaky clean.

    Love this idea! :) If there is a large amount of wax, I pop the container in the freezer for several hours. Take the container out of the freezer, run it under some cold water and the wax comes right out. :)
