Cleaning votive holders

Wax can easily build up in votive holders, but there is an easy way to remove it! Freeze it!

Simply stick the votive holder (or tart warmer) into your freezer for about 10 minutes. When wax is put into the freezer, it contracts (gets smaller), allowing it to get unstuck from the walls of the votive holder! You should be able to easily remove it with your fingers!

Now I’m ready to burn more votives!

Currently, I’m using my last Creamy Spiced Eggnog wax cube from BH&G, upon my fiance’s request. This one will be missed. hopefully it will come back next year….in which case I’ll buy much more!!!

  1. That’s exactly what I was asking myself this morning! Thanks for this post. Beautiful blog by the way — I recently got addicted to Yankee Candle and discovered your blog while doing some “research” πŸ˜‰ on the web.
