How to remove wax residue from a candle in a glass?

There are two basic ways to remove wax residue from a candle in glass, metal cans, or ceramics. However, remember that any method may end up damaging the container, so you use it at your own risk.

Method one: use cold to remove wax

  1. Place the candle glass or metal can in the freezer for about 2 - 3 hours.
  2. Take the container out of the freezer and use a small knife (preferably a wooden knife, especially if the glass is decorated on the inside!) To gently pry out the frozen wax. It should break easily into smaller pieces.
  3. Remove any wax residue from the bottom of the candle.
  4. Wash the container inside and out with a slightly warm sponge or cloth to remove any wax or oil residues. Remember to wash the container only when it thaws a little.
  5. Reuse your candle jar!

Method two: use heat to remove wax

  1. Place the candle glass or metal tin on a heat-resistant tray or simply in the kitchen sink.
  2. Pour the container with very warm (even hot!) Water and leave it for 12 - 24 hours. Remember that various waxes dissolve at a different temperature, for example, some vegetable waxes are already around 40 - 50 degrees Celsius, while paraffin or beeswax is at least 60 - 70 degrees Celsius.
  3. After the time has elapsed, the wax should flow to the top of the candle. Simply remove it by hand.
  4. Wash the container inside and out with a slightly warm sponge or cloth to remove any wax or oil residues.
  5. Reuse your candle jar!
