How to clean out candle wax to leave a clean glass vessel...... 1. Pour boiling water into the jar. 2. Leave it overnight. ie. wait for the water to cool completely. 3. next day, the wax will float to the top and harden & you can then pop all the cold wax out, dump the cold water and wash the jar in warm, soapy water – and be done.
