Do you have candle stubs left over from the votives, pillars, and tapers you’ve burned? Instead of throwing them out, try these 2 ideas to reuse the leftover wax.
- If you have a nub of wax leftover from a scented candle, place the stub in your closet. The scented wax will act as a sachet to freshen up the closet with a wonderful aroma.
- If you have drawers and doors that stick, use a candle stub to solve the problem. Rub the wax along the moving parts of the drawer (be careful with getting dyed wax on wood, over time the dye could color the wood) and it will slickly slide back and forth. For a door, carefully take the hinge pins out one at a time. Rub the nub of the candle all over the pins and place them back in the door. No more sticky hinges.
