Our glass candle jars are 100% recyclable, but we delight in seeing customers come up with creative ways to reuse them. From holding cotton buds to storing spices, each empty vessel can be reused in dozens of ways thanks to the iconic Glasshouse Fragrances lid and air-tight rubber seal.
A quick Google search will tell you there are a myriad of methods for cleaning every last skerrick of wax from candle jars. This is the approach we recommend: First, wipe out the vessel while the wax is still warm. If you need to, you can soak the jar in hot water first (avoid boiling water as it might crack the glass). Next, hand wash it as you would any glass, with dishwashing detergent and water. You could also pop it in the dishwasher. Repeat the process until the vessel is free from any wax.
Now you’ve got a sparkling clean vessel, what should you do with it? Here are a few of our favourite ideas.
