How do you get old wax and burned-out candles out of candle holders? It's really a piece of cake with this quick, cleaning tip!
Can you see the melted, purple candle in the bottom of the candle holder? The candle holder went into the freezer for about five minutes. Then, I slid a knife under the edge of the wax and it popped free from the candle holder.
Because the bottom of this candle holder is bigger than the top, I had to break the wax up a bit to get it to fit through the opening. The frozen wax broke easily with the knife. The whole process took just a few seconds once I removed the candle holder from the freezer. It works with any type of candle holder.
It's also a great way to remove wax drips from the sides of candlesticks.
