How to reuse and recycle tin glass container candles

More articles

This article assumes some knowledge of candle making. If you're a complete beginner, why not try one of our candle making kits first. They all come with a free "How to make candles" booklet.

There a number of ways to do this. We have detailed a couple of the easiest below.

Easy Method

Get a saucepan of water, put it on a low heat. Pop your container and candle into and under the water. It may float but this doesn't matter.

Increase the heat carefully and slowley until the wax begins to melt. Maintain this tempreature and no more.

Warning! At no time should the water reach boiling point.

When the wax has fully melted, turn off the heat and leave to fully cool.

Warning! The contents of the pan will still be hot enough to burn so please make sure you leave it in a safe situation so that children or others can not get harmed.

When fully cooled, the wax will have hardened on top of the water. Remove the wax and bin or recycle.

Other Method

Two pans, bigger one with water and and smaller one placed inside the bigger one in the water. Put a little water in the smaller one. Place the candle container in the small pan. Try to avoid water getting in to the candle container. Increase the heat gradually until the wax begins to melt.

Warning! At no time should the water reach boiling point.

When the wax has fully melted, remove the container trying not to spill any wax. Save the wax for re-use or bin it.

Warning! Wax, container, pan and water will all be hot! Do not use your fingers.

Warning! Making basic candles is not difficult, but getting perfect results takes time and practice. Never leave a lit candle unatended, below or close to other objects. Keep out of the reach of children and animals.
