If you have any used candle vases at home here is a quick and simple way to get all the wax out and get those vases looking new again:
Step 1: Put the vases in the freezer for 24 hours
Step 2: Remove from freezer and shake upside down until the remaining wax comes out. If it doesn't come out you can use a knife and cut around the edges to break it loose.
Step 3: Let the empty vases sit for about half an hour so they are not so cold to the touch anymore
Step 4: Put the vases in the dishwasher and wash with hot water
(DO NOT PUT THE COLD VASES IN THE DISHWASHER WITH HOT WATER, THEY WILL CRACK! MAKE SURE THEY HAVE TIME TO REACH ROOM TEMPERATURE)
Step 5: Remove the vases from the dishwasher and you have like new candle vases/ holders to reuse again!
Normally I try to post my All Things New Sundays posts on Sunday but I spent much of my day yesterday on the couch snuggled in a warm blanket, drinking tea, and reading! I was not in the mood to be on the computer at all so here I am posting my Sunday post on Monday night.
I hope your Monday gave you a good start to this week!
