Candle Care 101 – Cleaning (and reusing) candle jars

You’ve burned down to the safety wick of your Gold Canyon candle. Now what can you do with that jar?

First off, clean it! You can melt the wax in the jar by putting it in a low temperature oven. I find, though, that the wax is soft enough to easily dig out using the wick dipper.

Once you’ve removed the majority of the wax, use the Gold Canyon Wax Remover on the jar. Put some in the jar and let it sit for at least 5 minutes.

Then thoroughly wipe the jar, eliminating the excess wax and remover.

The wax has been removed from this jar.

Next spray the inside of the jar with the Gold Canyon Rosemary Mint All Purpose Cleaner. Using a clean towel or napkin, thoroughly wipe the inside of the jar.

Your jar is now clean and ready to be used for another purpose.!

Currently I am using four different jars (a five ounce Heritage, a 26 ounce Heritage, an 8 ounce Bella and an 11 ounce Comforts of Home) as candy jars. You can use the larger jars, such as the 26 ounce Heritages or the Baking Line, for “mixes in a jar” recipes. There are many ways to recycle the leftover jars!
