I use the oven method as well. Some of my ways to reuse the jars are:
– spices, mints, matches, nuts, candy, pet treats
– hair ties, cotton balls, office/desk supplies
– gift containers, tea candles, loose change, bath salts
but if you have a big vase you can put empty jar upside down inside of vase and put large candl on top, the fill vase as desired. We did this for a wedding shower centerpiece. We had small stones in ours.

candy jars

Paula Nowak says:

Cool! Now I want to buy candles in jars. Enjoyed the ideas video, too.

Marcela Crisetti says:

What about the wax itself? Can that be melted down and combined with other pieces of wax to make more candles? Some of these pieces of wax are still scented and can be recycled into more candles. Just seems like a waste to get rid of small pieces of scented wax. Any ideas?

Lucia Tiburcio says:

i like that what you did

Noor Ayop says:

I’m gonna try the third method!

Renata Russo says:

I tend to put spices on used jam containers…

Just A German says:

you should be very careful rinsing the access wax, it could clog the pipes!

Lynn Maust says:

ah HA….that’s how you get them clean…super!

smgore1 says:

Thanks

gayla gavin says:

If it’s a scent you love, use the freezer method and then you can chunk up the leftover wax and use it in a wax warmer.

Jay Em says:

The oven method is very wasteful: gas + that aluminum foil

Julie Hamlin says:

Hi Melissa, I would want to know do they sell a pink spray like you use in the video and, about the paper towels I have been spending a lot of money for that for the dog’s piss in the house I did used cloth towel because I was out of paper towels I’m very tired of going back and forth buying more of paper towels so I wouldn’t use cloth towel because it smells and won’t remove the stain out of it after laundering. So, I thought of your cloth will it works for dog’s piss to clean it up and remove the odor stain out of it or is it for house cleaning purpose only?

Andy Pandy says:

I use the boiling water method to melt the wax and let it cool down and set. The wax will float to the top. I collect all the wax from used candles and combine to make new candles. You can buy candles wicks for this purpose. Just be careful with fragrances as you might not end up with a combination you like. Fragraced and unfragced work well especially if the perfume is quite strong. Pretty jars are useful tea lights holders.

MrRatherino says:

q tip jar with the lid …great vid!

piggyduff says:

I use them as tea light holders in the garden

Donna Gambrell says:

Cool Vid! Thanks!

Kat B says:

My favorite candle jars are the apothecary-style jars. I buy a lot of dried herbs from the local whole foods store, but buying proper storage for them is a little expensive for me, so I like to store them in these tightly-sealed apothecary jars instead.

Bear Pope-Terry says:

Might sound strange but I clean them all out and use them as drinking glasses

Janalyn Biesinger says:

I was just wondering how to get candle wax out of my candle holder. This video was very timely. Thank you!

Gema Reyes says:

I literally just finished a candle and wanted to know how to reuse to jar….so helpful thanks a bunch!!!

TengYin Liang says:

my candle jars are those last for 20-30 min. it’s the smallest size of jar, I don’t know what can i do with it

busybeeme100 says:

Thanks so much. I used the freezer method and it worked so well. Not sure yet what I will use the empty jar for but I am sure to get some ideas from the comments.

jN Delaney says:

For this suggestion: First, do not use a water type solution to clean out your old wax,
because – when a candle is lighted and has water on it, it will spit at you awfully.
Now, instead of throwing out that old wax, save it in a medium or large sized, empty,
clean, dry ‘vegetable’ or fruit can. When the electric goes out (as it does here in WV),
stick a wick or toothpick in the saved wax —
Viola — handy light or cooking source. ~ Nadene in WV

AJ Boreland says:

what brand is your electric teaport maker?

Kate S says:

yes please need video for uses. i have done the freezer method and it was sooo easy. i have reused them to make home made candles and for makeup brush storage in the bathoom. i still have more that i need to find uses for. love the videos, keep them up

FrankEdavidson says:

Cheaper using a microwave oven.

smgore1 says:

I hope you will do one on books!

spoilednlovingit says:

I’ve been repurposing candle jars for years, I find that the microwave is much faster. I just pop it in for a minute or so, then wipe it clean with a paper towel. Depending on the type of microwave you have, you might have to remove the metal piece at the bottom (I use a knife) before you put it in you microwave.

L Lawliet says:

If a macho guy like me is even suspected of having a candle jar, I’ll never hear the end of it!

MafyGarcia says:

Love it. thank you!!!

Jay Em says:
