Supplies | The White Dahlia

The Supplies:

Frozen Candle
Kitchen Knife
Tea Towel (for grip)


Place finished candle in the freezer for 4-6 hours, until frozen, overnight is best.
Once frozen, use your tea towel to grip the candle and use the kitchen knife as leverage to “pop” the unused wax out of the candle container. (Make sure the wax and container are completely hard and frozen)
Wash and dry your container and Voila! You are ready you reuse your candle containers!
