Then came along this pin from Pinterest which ended up rocking my world. The pin explained step-by-step how to remove old wax from a candle jar in order to rescue the jar itself! Pleased as punch.
It's actually super easy and doesn't take much time at all. If you want to learn how to salvage your old glass candle jars, then just keep on reading!
Select your candle jar of choice. Remove all labels.
Pour boiling water into the jar. Be sure to have something underneath the jar. I used a pan. This catches the excess water and any candle wax.
Pour the water out and wipe the excess speckles with a towel.
Say "ta da" and show someone your hard work.
Husband thinks we have too many mason jars but I beg to differ. Is there even such a thing? As Alan Jackson once said, "too much of a good thing... is a good thing."
