Save Money On Candles By Removing Wax

Did you know you can save money on your candle purchases? If you can remove the wax then you can warm it to extend the scent. This is a great way to scent your home even after the candle no longer burns!

I have been thinking of getting a wax warmer for a long time. I hesitated on doing so because it seems there is not much wax left at the end. Someone told me there is actually quite a bit left and I should try wax removal. I then thought that if I could get a lot of wax it would be worth it.

Old method

In the past I would simply reuse the jars for storage. This means I did not need the wax! I would place the jars in hot water and pour the wax out when it melted. Using this method would mean I would need to then store the melted wax if I also wanted to use the jar.

New method

Someone told me that freezing candle works better. Now I place the candle in the freezer for one hour and then pop the wax out with a butter knife. As you can see the wax slides easily out in one chunk. The glass jar is left clean and only needs a little soap and water before being reused.

Now I know I can safely and easily remove wax I will seriously look into getting a wax warmer when they go on sale. This is a good amount of wax that can reused, which I have been throwing away.
