HOW-TO CLEAN YOUR TINS AND JARS
- When roughly 1/4-1/2 inch (6-12 mm) of unmelted wax remains, discontinue using your candle and place it in the freezer. Once the wax has hardened, the wax and wick can be chipped out.
- Alternatively you can boil about 1 inch of water in a pot on the stove and once boiled, turn the burner down to the lowest setting. Then place the container in the boiled water (don't let water get inside the vessel if possible) and let the remaining wax melt slowly.
- Once the wax has melted, pour it out into a trash bin and then wipe out any remaining wax and the wick with a paper towel. Finish off by washing the container in very hot, soapy water. Rubbing alcohol can be used to remove any leftover wax residue.
Dispose of the hard or liquid wax in a trash bin. DO NOT POUR ANY WAX DOWN YOUR DRAIN!
Caution: The container will be very hot! Please wear rubber gloves to protect your hands from the boiling water or hot melted wax!
