6 Clever Ways to Repurpose Your Empty Candle Jars
One of my biggest weaknesses in life is a good candle sale (Bath & Body Works' 3-wicks, am I right?). I'm a sucker for some burning wax, and if you are too, then you also know that your candle affinity comes with a particular conundrum: what to do with the jar after the wax burns out? It seems like a shame to toss it, but hoarding a collection of empty jars seems pretty useless. That is, unless you have a use for it.
For starters, make sure to clean your candle out. The secret to cleaning glass candle jars is to freeze them for at least a few hours. All those wax scraps will solidify and harden so you can scoop it out without crumbling. Then, go in with a butter knife, crack the wax to remove, and give it a good wash. Once you have a beautiful jar ready for new life, try these handy hacks below.
