How to Get Wax Out of a Candle Jar Easily!

This is such a quick and easy way everyone should be doing it!
First freeze your used up candle for at least a few hours or overnight - the longer the better!
Then using a firm knife (that wont bend!) push into the center of the candle, it should crack at least 2 or 3 times, get enough cracks that you can pull the pieces out easily.
I got lucky with this one - the wicks came out with the wax! It they don't, then either use a little force to pull them up or soak in hot water. Remove the label, use a little dishwashing liquid to clean and your good to go! :-)
