I would like to thank Caddy Sw for the awesome video on how to DIY a Candle Recycling. I organized it into a wiki for anyone with a hearing impairment, or for those who just prefer to read the steps. Hope you enjoy it. :)
Hi, guys. So I recently purchased one of those wax warmers from Hobby Lobby, and there was a 15% off. I begin to wax squares and I have this candle, it's a Macintosh Apple, I've had it for years but is was just a cheap candle, saw the way it burns with a very cheap lay like there is a big hole all in the middle.
- 2The candle is just sitting in the water, I'll wait for it to melt.Maybe next is lying a cooking tray with some saran wrap and I am just going to pour the wax into it, and then I'm just breaking it up into chunks, it's not going to be as cool as perfect squares or anything. But I need to really go the store probably and buy those mini ice cream trays because the ice cream trays that I have now are just really too big, with a many ice cream tray would be perfect. If you have time before you start this project, I will head to the store first.Advertisement
- 9This is completely a random idea how to basically woke up today just like, I'm going to put this old candles which I love, but it cannot burn anymore, I'm putting the stove tap and see what happens, so I kind of don't really know what's going on and maybe that this is something the other people have already thought of, but I'm going to call it on my own and say it, way to go, this is a beautiful idea.While this is drying, I decided to clean out the jar.
- 11But basically, I reheated again and poured the wick or whatever little bit of wax that was still inside right into the trash can, then I just kind of submerged the whole thing and let it get all warm and all covered with water and just pour out as much as of the wax or whatever was inside of it out.
