Inspired by a recent Pinterest find, I decided to take on the simple project of turning my old candle jar into a reusable, wax free, container.
First step: place the candle jar in your freezer for a few hours. It actually makes the wax shrink away from the sides of the jar! Who knew?
Second step: use a knife to pick out the leftover wax. It took 5 seconds, the old wax just slid right out.
Third step: peel off the side and bottom stickers. Then clean the jar with warm water and vinegar (the vinegar really helps the glass to shine).
Fourth step: put your new container to good use! I decided on a new home for our Q-tips, they were a little difficult to grab under the sink among all the other clutter.
