DIY- How to remove leftover wax from candle jars

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Happy Monday everyone!
How many candle jars do you throw away? Well there's answer remove the leftover  wax and use the jars as cute storage. Here's how you do it:

  1. Remove any labels the jar has, most labels peel back easily

  2. Go and boil your kettle

  3. Fill the jar with the boiling water, leave to stand for about 2 to 5 minutes or until all the  wax seems to have melted 

  4. Get a blunt knife and scrap any wax that is still stuck to the sides away, most of the wax will fall off the second you touch it

  5. Drain all the water away

  6. Wash the jar out with hot soapy water

  7. Fill with anything you like, i've filled mine with makeup brushes but you can use them for anything

I know this was a short blogpost but I hope it's taught you what you can do with those empty candle jars. So no more throwing jars away when they can easily become storage and save you money!

Thanks for reading
