    re-use old candle jars for things like cotton balls or q-tips: place the candle in the freezer for at least 1 hour, this will freeze remaining wax. Then take a dull knife & break wax apart, remove wax and any jar labels, clean out remaining gunk w/ paper towel & vinegar, baby oil, olive oil, or orange solvent, rinse with soapy water, dry w/ paper towel then use for storage!
