I love burning scented candles in my house. I don’t love it when the candle burns unevenly and leaves behind a wall of wax in my jar candles. I used to throw these candles away as soon as I reached the end of the wick. I used to.
Now I enjoy my unevenly burned candles longer by using a small hot plate. I set the candle on the plate, let the wax melt, fish out the end of the wick, and let the scent fill the room. By using a hot plate, the candle can be enjoyed without it’s wick time and time again!
You can find candle warmers in many stores. They even sell wick-less candles. However, I was pleased to get the same results without making a special purchase.
If anything, I’m thrilled not to feel so stupid about keeping my hot plate from the office job I left in 2007!! Ha!
Are you a year round candle burner? Have you ever tried this hot plate method with your old candles?
