We are ecstatic to announce our newest line of Refillable Mosquito Repellent Candles. Our Mosquito Repelling Candle Refills come in an aluminum tin that is curbside recyclable but we need your help to make sure the tin is properly prepped prior to recycling and therefore minimize it's ultimate impact on the environment. Before recycling the tin, it is very important that you remove all remaining wax from the tin. Partially burnt through candles are not recyclable no matter the vessel. Therefore, we put together three easy ways to remove whatever wax remains.
THREE WAYS TO REMOVE CANDLE WAX
Note: Please ensure that your candle is fully cooled before removing the wax.
1. The Frozen Candle Method:
One of the easiest ways to go about removing candle wax is by throwing your burnt candle in the freezer! The cold temperature causes the wax to harden and shrink making it easier to remove. Place your candle in the freezer for 2-4 hours. Afterward, it should pop right out of the container or become easily loose with a butter knife. Throw remaining wax and burnt wick away. Finally, clean tin with soap and water and recycle.
2. The Hot Water Method
3. The Savage Method:
Lastly... don't forget to replenish your stock of candles! Cost-effective refill candle packs are available online here.
