  1. Question and Answer
    I'm trying to figure out a way to get that last little bit of wax out from the bottom of my jar candles. I have some jars that are tall and some that are short and would like to recycle/re-purpose them vs throwing them out. Got any tried and true ways to do this?

  5. Question and Answer
    hello everyone, I used to buy them from a couple of sites online, but they seem to no longer be in business! Does anyone out there have a good source for them? My supply is dwindling and I would love to find a new home based business that sells them. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Any tips on how to do this? I live in an older house, and the previous tenant waxed the kitchen floor. I want to remove the wax buildup, because the floor is looking grimy no matter how often I scrub it! Thanks in advance!

    Right after it's completely melted and when you are adding color? Before or after color? What works best---fragrance oils or essential oils? Can you add regular perfume?

    I bought a tub of some Sally Hansen no-heat wax to wax my underarms, but I'm not happy with it at all. Besides the mess of using it, it didn't even work well. I used it on my bikini line which worked but itched 2 weeks later more than it's ever itched in the past with other wax or hair removal...

    I'm trying to decide on the best way to get the residue off. I've scraped most of it up with a spatula. Certainly someone else has done this before me and is willing to share what they've learned. We can just keep to ourselves how it got there in the first place.

    Since I was at home alone, I wasn't able to pour and photograph at the same time (!). So here are the freshly poured candles. I use a ladle, usually pouring the bigger candles first. The newspaper makes clean up so much easier (yet another thing I learned the hard way). I haven't mastered...
