How to Re-Use Our Candles

At Candle House Ceylon, we’ve always believed in doing our part to the community and environment. With every candle sold, we promote a sustainable and environmentally friendly living. Our candles come in eco-friendly candle jars; a conscious decision taken to ensure that our packaging does not end up in landfills or get eaten by wild animals. All jars can be repurposed and used well beyond the useful life of the candle.

Repurposing our eco-friendly candle jars is an easy, two-step process!

And it’s fun! Read on to welcome a new storage container into your house from Candle House Ceylon.

Step 1:

Pour water 1/2 way in to wide shallow pan and heat on a stove.

Place your CHC candle container/s on the pan of water.

As the water heats up, the remaining wax in the bottom of the candle container will begin to soften. Poke the wax a bit at the edges of the container with the hand of a spoon or old butter knife and the wax will come right off!

*Don’t forget to turn off the heat, as a little heat is sufficient to soften the wax easily. Use caution when handling the glass as it may become very hot.

Use a paper towel to wipe off any remaining wax bits from the glass container making sure to do so while the glass is still warm.

Voila! You have a clean, shiny glass that looks brand new! Wash it with warm, soapy water to get that extra shine on!

Step 2:

You can even use a hairdryer to heat the glass on the outside if there is only a little wax remaining inside the glass. The point is to soften the wax just a bit to swoop it right off the glass!

Now that you have a brand-new glass jar, are you going to use it for storage or get creative with a paint brush? Write to us and share it with our CHC community! We can’t wait to learn how our eco-friendly candle jars are faring!
