A question we are often asked is 'how do I remove used wax from my warmer?'. This is a very good question, once the wax has lost its scent and has solidified in your wax warmer dish, getting it out can be messy and awkward.
We've put together 4 tips to help you remove your wax with ease!
1. Scrape with a spoon or knife
The first option is to scrape the wax when it's solid out with a spoon or a blunt knife (butter knife). This is probably the least recommended as it can be messy, there is a small chance of it damaging the dish and also you have to be very careful not to hurt yourself.
However, this is a very quick option, it saves you having to melt the wax first. It's an option but not an ideal option. If you are going to do this then make sure the wax is at room temperature as it will be relatively soft and easy to remove.
2. Cotton wool balls
When you blow out your tea light or switch off your electric warmer, let the wax cool down slightly but not solidify. Then place 2 or 3 (or however many are needed) cotton wool balls into the wax. These will then soak up the wax, you can then discard of them, give the dish a wipe with some tissue and you're ready to go again.
3. Fridge or freezer
Many of our customers prefer this method. When your wax has partially solidified, pop it in the freezer or fridge for a short time. This will rapidly cool the wax causing it to shrink, it will then pop out of the dish easily.
4. Warm and push!
When you're ready to change your wax and it's already solid in your warmer, just turn your warmer on for a short while until the wax is pliable but not liquid. You will then be able to slide it out of the warmer with ease, give it a wipe over and it'll be ready for a new piece of wax.
We hope you find these methods helpful and easy. If you have any questions or if there is a method you swear by, please do share with us as we'd love to know and share with the rest of our community.
