DISCOVER THE ART OF CANDLE RECYCLING AND REPURPOSING!

So, you've enjoyed the flickering glow of your favourite FOX & WOLF candle, but now what? While recycling is always an option, why not get a little more creative with those used candle containers? Here's our guide to transforming them into something truly magical.

1. SAFETY FIRST

Always extinguish your candle when there's about a quarter-inch of wax left. Not only does this prevent overheating, but it also ensures a safer burn.

2. FREEZE AND RELEASE 

Once your candle has burned down to around half to a quarter inch of wax, it's time to work some magic. Extinguish it and let it cool down for a few hours. Then, pop the container into the freezer overnight. When fully frozen, give it a tap on the bottom, and the wax should slide out effortlessly. No mess, no fuss—just pure satisfaction!

3. SQUEAKY CLEAN

After the wax is removed, give your container a good scrub with dish soap and water. Stubborn stains? Soak the jar in warm, soapy water. And if sticky residue remains after removing the label, a dab of isopropyl alcohol will do the trick.

4. AVOID THE DISHWASHER 

While it may be tempting to toss your candle jar in the dishwasher, don't do it! The heat and chemicals can damage the glass, ruining its aesthetic appeal.


NOW, LET'S GET CREATIVE WITH REPURPOSING THOSE CANDLE VESSELS

1. Coin Collector: Keep a jar near your front door for spare change. It's a chic and convenient way to collect those coins for something special.

2. Cocktail Hour: Serve up your favourite drinks in style by using cleaned candle jars as tumblers. Cheers to that!

3. Snack Attack: From salty treats to sweet delights, candle jars make charming snack bowls for any occasion.

4. Clutter Control: Tame the chaos by using empty jars to organize your space. Whether it's toiletries, office supplies, or miscellaneous items, these jars are the perfect solution.

5. Plant Parenthood: Transform your candle jar into a cozy home for plant clippings. As roots form, your jar will become a beautiful piece of living decor.

6. Candle Care Central: Keep your candle accessories tidy by storing them in empty candle jars. Snuffers, trimmers, and matches—everything has its place.


With a little creativity and a dash of imagination, your candle containers can take on a whole new life. So, don't just recycle—reimagine! Let's give those jars the second act they deserve.
