Twitter, I’ve got that down. Which didn’t work in my favor because I saw a pin via a tweet. And the pin was about recycling your old candle jars. So, of course, I needed to try this immediately [[see, I told you me and Pinterest are not a good idea]].
I had a candle that was almost done, so I burned it all night long. Then, like the tutorial said, I put it in the freezer. After a bunch of work [[and a bent knife]], I got the wax out. I washed it, then cleaned it with vinegar, then finally olive oil [[they were all options, I just don’t think you were supposed to try all of them]]. I finally washed it for real, and put Q-tips in it.
It actually looks really nice on our bathroom counter, especially now since I reorganized that [[if you remember from the other bathroom post in New Apartment Guide]].
I have another candle that we just started, but I’m really hoping to burn that down so I can re-purpose it for cotton balls.
You’ve gotta admit, it’s cute? And resourceful. I had the candles for free from a CVS deal a while back, so it didn’t cost me anything. And I can’t afford to buy any sort of jars right now anyway so this is perfect for everyone.
