Cleaning your candle containers
Now that you have explored our list of ways to repurpose our candle containers, let's go through the necessary steps to remove leftover wax from your old Oji Amorè candle vessel. There are three methods we suggest to remove excess wax from our jars:
A. The freezer method, which requires you to put our old candle vessel inside the freezer, will freeze the wax. Frozen wax is more brittle, hence easier to remove from the container.
B. You can use a knife to scrape the remaining wax out smoothly.
C. Dip a paper towel in warm water and wipe out any leftover wax.
D. For firmer leftover wax, we recommend the use of a wax warmer. To remove this wax, place the candle jar on a wax melter. Once the candle residue softens or liquifies, remove the container and empty the container's wax in a plastic bottle or garbage can. Do not ever pour wax down your sink. It will clog your pipes and lead to costly plumbing issues. Once the wax is completely removed, wash the jar with warm water and soap.
Without a doubt, our candle containers have many uses. And if you're on the hunt for zero waste products, our candle collections will not disappoint. Get your money's worth and shop all of our beautiful candles today.
