Recycling bad candles


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have made several container candles that because of not measuring my FO and testing (beginner's mistake) they don't give off a nice scent throw. How can I reuse the wax? I hot glued the wicks to the glass. Can they go in the oven? Are the wicks going to be useless afterwards?

Should I scoop them out and try again or consider them a lost cause? Please help.:confused:

You can put them in the oven at the lowest setting for about a half hour. This will melt the wax and you can just pour them out into your melting pot to do over. To remove the wick from the container, you can use a pair of pliers. If it comes out in good condition, you can reuse it for your own testing, otherwise just use a new one.
