You know what I can’t stand? Candles. They’re stupid. They’re full of chemicals. They’re disgusting. Plus, they’re messy. I’m not talking about your regular candles, I’m talking about your candle that burned a hole in your face, or your candle that lit up your neighbor’s house the other day, or your candle that made your entire room smell like mold and burnt popcorn bags.
Candles have a life-cycle that is as disgusting as some of the things you’d expect. The first step in removing a candle from a glass jar is to make sure that you’ve washed your hands thoroughly. To do that, turn off the power to your kitchen, close the door, and wash your hands in the sink. If it takes longer than 10 minutes, call the exterminator.
If you can get your hands on a candle, you can use that to remove the candle from your jar. Simply place your candle on a piece of paper towels or a clean dishcloth, and place it on top of the candle. You can either rub your hand over the candle to make sure youve not touched anything and then reinsert the candle, or you can just use a spoon and scoop the candle out with some force.
If this method sounds a little too messy, you can always just soak a cotton ball in warm water and wrap it around the base of the candle.
So, youve had a couple of candles in your jar for so long that youve been convinced that they have to be there. Youve probably even started to think that youve been the one to have them. I know it seems silly, but this is how it works.
Candle wax is fairly easy to remove. You can remove the wax by scraping it off with a knife, or you can just soak a cotton ball in warm water and wrap it around the base of the candle. When you’re finished, you’ll have a candle that is basically just the same as a candle that you’ve had in your jar for a couple of days.
Although you can’t tell from the picture, we do see a candle in the background, but it is not the candle youve been trying to remove. I think it was a candle that was on the inside of the jar.
It’s true that you can remove wax from a candle simply by soaking the cotton ball in warm water. In this case, though, you need to soak a cotton ball in cold water first; the cold water means you’ll start to see bubbles as soon as you begin to remove the wax. This is because when you soak a cotton ball in cold water, the wax starts to melt, and the water in the cotton ball begins to turn to steam.
I’ve seen numerous videos and articles on how to remove wax from a candle without soaking the cotton ball in hot water. I’ve also seen several videos on how to remove a candle from a glass jar without soaking the cotton ball in cold water. The important thing is to remember that wax must be removed from a candle first.
That brings us to another important tip, because wax is more than just a substance that can be removed from a candle. Wax is actually the main ingredient and the energy behind the wick. Wax is the “life force” in the wick and the energy needed to light the wick. Without wax, the candle would not burn. Wicking means transferring the energy from the wick to the candle. The best example of this is the difference between a wick and a string.
