The first of many

A few days ago I finished burning my first full Gold Canyon candle. This one was an 8 ounce Pomegranate Heritage candle. Now I need to decide what to do with the empty jar.

I haven’t tried the Gold Canyon recommended jar cleaning instructions yet, but plan to this weekend:

Be thrifty, be green. Salvage glass candle jars and make them purposeful again turning them into unique holders or accent pieces. You can use empty jar candles, candle holders or candle accessories containers as places to store supplies in the office; as food containers for candy, spices, flour, sugar or tea bags in the kitchen; as storage for buttons, safety pins or craft items in the spare bedroom; as everyday containers for storing cotton balls, soaps or cotton swabs.

  1. Only use this method of cleaning when 1/2” or less of wax remains in a candle jar. Turn oven to 200 degrees, place candle jar on a baking sheet and warm in the oven for 30 minutes or just until wax is liquefied. CAUTION: Candle jars will be hot to the touch.
  2. Pour wax into a disposable heat safe container. Use a disposable towel to wipe out any remaining wax in the candle jar.
  3. Squeeze Wax Remover into candle jar; wipe clean.
  4. Spray candle jar with Gold Canyon’s natural cleaning product, Homeology™ All Purpose, rinse in hot water and dry.
