There’s nothing more frustrating that needing a votive holder, only to find leftover candle wax clinging to the bottom. Fortunately, I have a few tricks up my sleeve for solving that little dilemma.
How to remove candle wax from votive holders:
Place the votive holder in hot water. The heat from the water softens the wax enough to scrape it out. A butter knife works well.
The last time that I needed to get candle wax out of a votive holder, I decided to see if I could just scrape it out with a knife….thinking that since it works for Scentsy, maybe it would work for votives. Sure enough, that’s all it took.
This method works best when there’s only a small amount of wax.
This is my favorite method and has proved to be tried and true. Place your votive cup in the freezer for at least an hour.
Remove the holder and pop out the wax. Super easy.
Be sure to pin these handy tips for later!
