Have you tried putting a piece of wax paper in the shape of the handle in the bottom of a candle holder with a bit of water? I've tried this and it makes it very easy to get the candle wax out. this works best for votive or larger candles not tea lights. Also, if the candle sits in a glass holder too long, all of the above will not work. I use Amway's Scouring pads to get out the residue. They do not scratch the glass....

Great tip Maven. I liked it so much I pinned it!
Jason, no worries even if the candle burned all the way down any flame would burn out quickly and be contained within the glass.

wouldn't it make it more flammable?? I'd be very cautious about doing this

I always just ran mine under hot water- they pop out and as a plus any dust that has collected comes off too!

just put a few drops of water in the candleholder before burning the candle....and the wax will pop right out
