You can get out almost 80% of the wax from old candle jars pretty easily, but because it is very slimy, it is very hard to crystal clear all the wax. Do not worry; you can use any of these 3 pretty easy, quick, and cheap methods to get the work done.

  • In the morning, simply remove the wax chips by hand from the water top.
  • Pour all the water into the sink and wash it with soap & warm water.

b) Method No. 2: Use a Coffer Warmer

  • Place the jar on a candle or coffee warmer.
  • Turn the warmer on, and leave the jar on it.
  • After 2 – 3 hours, all the leftover wax will be melted down. Simply pour it down into the sink.
