You Will Need
- Dish soap
- A butter knife or spoon
- A baking sheet
- A freezer
Add ½ inch of water to a votive candleholder before inserting the candle. When the candle burns down, the wax will pop out easily.
Soak in hot water
Soak glass candle holders in hot, soapy water for a few minutes. This will soften the wax so that you can scrape it out with a butter knife or a spoon.
Place your candleholder on a baking sheet and leave it in the freezer overnight.
Take out of the freezer and remove wax
Take the candleholder out of the freezer and gently tap the glass with your fingers until the wax loosens enough to remove.
Wash the candleholder in hot, soapy water or run it through the dishwasher if it is dishwasher-safe.
Enjoy your candleholder, which will look brand new the next time you use it.
