How to Remove Wax From Glass Tapers

A couple of weeks ago we hosted our adoption gala. If you missed that post you can read all about it here.

I used approximately 100 taper candles on the tables, but one of the things I did not account for was how fast the candle would burn down due to the air conditioning.

The candles burnt down in half the time they should have which resulted in 100 glass tapers with leftover burnt down wax. Ugh.

I use this method to remove wax from jars and tapers which works most of the time, but this technique is most effective when I am able to blow out the candle prior to it burning below the opening of the taper.

I placed the glass tapers in the freezer first, but this method was not nearly as effective and only allowed for easy removal of about 10% of the wax.

So . . . I moved to another method that often works if the freezing method doesn’t.
