I’ve really gotten into finding uses for glass jars and bottles. Candles frequently come in glass containers, and I’ve been experimenting with their uses. For example, Ikea sells inexpensive scented candles. Some with tops, and others without tops:
After completely burning the topless version of Sinnlig, I liked its shape, and decided to clean it. After research, I read that you can freeze the candle and remove it (if it has not already burned down). For me, this was not necessary. After I rinsed the outside in hot water, I was able to scoop out most of the remaining wax. Then, after reading that cooking oil removes the remainder, I thought I’d try spray oil. I used some generic-brand that was languishing in my cabinet.
Simply spray the inside generously with the oil.
Using a paper towel, wipe out the wax. It comes out easily!
Wash in the dishwasher or by hand, and you now have an adorable juice glasses.
The candles with covers are not the same size or shape, but I have a few ideas for them, too. Stay tuned!
