DIY - Reuse Your Old Candle Glasses (Method 2)

Last Summer, I wrote a post on how to clean off the leftover wax and wick from your old candles that won't burn anymore.  See that post here.

Recently, I've found a better method of removal... one that barely requires any effort.

1. Put the candle into the freezer for 1-2 hours, or until you start seeing cracks in the wax.

 2. Take a butter knife to help you pop out the leftover wax and wicks.

 3. Clean the glass with dishwashing soap and wipe clean.
Please remember to use your sink strainer!  You do not want hot wax or glue to go down your drain.

4. Use it to store whatever you want. Ta-Da!
