What’s better than recycling? REUSING!
When y’all burn your candles and bring us back the empty jars, you get $1 off your next candle and we clean out the jars and use them again!
Y’all don’t have to clean them before you bring them back, but we get a lot of questions about the best way to clean them (fortunately soy candles are really easy to clean out). Here’s what we do:
- Stick ‘em upside down on foil in the oven as low as your oven gets (ours does 200 degrees). Wax will fall down onto the foil
- Wipe out the jar with a cloth or paper towel to get any remaining drips of wax (careful, the jar might be a bit hot!)
- Soak the jar for a few minutes in warm water so you can peel off the front sticker & bottom sticker
& that’s it! It’s a bit time consuming, but Greta thinks helping clean the jars is fun. (& she’s learning about reusing & recycling!)
p.s. If you live in Austin, the best way to get us your empty candle jars is to bring them to our store!
