Yesterday, I was lucky enough to get to attend the fall preview for Anthropologie. And as I was looking at the new products that will be in stores in a few months, I got to talking with the PR girls about all the fancy new candles. When they shared this tip with me, I had a total why-didn’t-I-think-of-that moment.
Once your candle (in a glass or ceramic container—not a taper) gets down to the end of the wick, but there’s still a bit of wax left, use up the rest of the wax by placing the candle on your stove top when the oven is on or on your radiator (if you have the freestanding steam kind) when it’s on. This will help release the scent of the wax and put that candle to full use.
What other smart tips do you have? Leave them in the comments or e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll share a few here on the blog.
