Option #3 - The Oven Method
This is a great way to clean out multiple containers at once.
Use a butter knife or spoon to remove excess wax. Heat the oven to 180 degrees and line a rimmed baking pan with tinfoil or parchment paper. Place the candles upside down in the pan and place the pan in the oven. The wax will melt in about 10-15 minutes. Remove the pan and place on a heat-safe surface. Using a towel or pot holder, remove each container and wipe the inside with a paper towel. Once the container is cool, clean out with soap and water.
Option #4 - Double Boiler Method
This is our favorite and most used method to remove wax.
Use a butter knife or spoon to remove excess wax. Fill a pot with 2 inches of water and place on the stove. Place the container in the pot and allow water to heat up. Let the container sit in the hot water until the wax has softened. Remove the container, pour or wipe out the wax, then clean out with soap and water.
Reminder - Never put wax down your sink drain
