When you’re done burning a scented candle at home, do you ever wonder how to clean out the bottom portion of stuck-in wax? For any container holding a candle -- glass, metal, ceramic, etc. -- all you have to do is pop it in the freezer overnight. Freezing the wax forces it to shrink and pull away from the container. Just remove the container from the freezer, place it upside down and tap the bottom firmly with your hand. The disc of wax will pop out to reveal a virtually clean container ready to be upcycled into whatever you want.
