There is three common ways to clean a candle container.

  1. Freezing method

Cold causes wax to harden and shrink, making it easier to remove. Place the candle in the freezer for several hours or until it is frozen. The wax should pop right out of the container, but you can also loosen it with a butter knife if necessary. Scrape off any residue and then clean the container with soap and water. This method is best for ceramic (not glass).

  1. Boiling Water method

Hot water can also be used to remove wax. Put the candle on a surface protected with a towel or newspaper. Pour boiling water into the container, leaving room at the top. (If your candle is made of a soft wax, such as soy wax, you can use hot water that is not boiling.) The boiling water will melt the wax and it will float to the top. Let the water cool and remove the wax. Strain the water to get rid of any small wax bits. Do not pour wax down the drain. Scrape any remaining wax and clean with soap and water.

  1. Double Boiler method

Remove as much wax as you can with a butter knife or a spoon. Place the candle inside of a pot or large metal bowl on a heat-safe surface. (You can put a folded dish towel under the candle to keep it from moving in the pot.) Pour boiling water into the pot around the candle, making sure that the water does not get into the candle jar. Let the jar sit in the hot water until the wax has softened. Hold the jar in one hand and use a butter knife to loosen the wax. Remove the container from the water, pop out the wax, and then wash with soap and water.

Caution should be taken when using hot water or heating wax.
