I love an Ikea Sinnlig candle (especially now Ikea has lowered the price!) and have had a few burnt out candles waiting to be re-purposed for a while now.
I finally got round to cleaning them out this weekend and thought I’d share a few simple tips to remove wax and repurpose candle jars.
First off, place the candle jar in a bowl of warm water:
And then pop it in the freezer for a couple of hours. The temperature change should harden the wax and then using a knife, you should be able to gently prise it out in one piece:
Et voila, a glass jar you can now use for whatever you please.
I’m planning to use my new collection of glass jars for jewellery storage… watch this space!
