Hi,

I am new at this craft. I am looking for things to do with my kids when I have them. So far I learned the hard way not to use a glass baking pan on the stove top:shocked2: and wax burns skin:sad2:.

What is the best and safest way to get wax out of glass containers so that they can be reused?

Can the wax be reused?

Some of the first ones we did came out great the colors melded well, the wax adheared to the sides, the wax had cool snow flake texture etc. The others had air gaps and pulled away from the sides and funky texture.

Is there a club or interest group in san diego that I could join?

Hi Ron,

Welcome to CT. You might get more responses in the general candle making area.

Double boilers are the easiest way to get the wax out of the jars. Don't get wax into your drains though. Unless you are a plumber!

Read through this site and you will find alot of answers to your questions.

Starter kits are great if you are planning on working on this with your kids.

Peak candle supplies has some great kits.

Depending on your kids age I am not sure if this is a really "safe" hobby.

Welcome to the boards. TO remove wax from your glass containers set a pn in your oven under the rack put your glass upside down on the oven rack and set the oven to about 150-175 DO NOT GO ANY HIGHER and make sure your glass will take that kind of heat (most glass will thin really thin glass may crack.) The wax will soften and run out of your containers. Wipe out any residue with paper towles.
