Have you ever bought a candle thinking “This comes in a really cute jar! I’m totally going to re-use this later to store all kinds of things and be super organized!”?
Time: 5 Minutes Cost: $0 Difficulty: Easy
So now, out of all those times that you’ve thought that to yourself, how many of those times did you actually remove the wax and how many times did you just put the burned out candle in a cabinet “to do later”?
Grab a large bowl and fill it with ice cold water.
[Psst! There's also a secret for using up all of the candle wax in your jar. Check it out, here!]
Take a pot, fill it with water, and heat it until it's boiling.
Next, you are going to take the boiling water, and pour it into the jar. This is going to melt all of the wax out of the jar, and even get into those really hard-to-reach nooks and crannies!

Now, you are going to take your jar of hot water, and very, very carefully pour it into the bowl of cold water. The cold water is going to cause the wax to harden and float on top of the water, leaving your jar nice and clean!
Materials I used for this project:
