Beeswax and Lavender

Cleaning tip of the day

Cleaning tip of the day: how to clean the melted wax out of glass votives. Place the votives in the pot, in the sink, and filled it with super hot tap water. After 5 minutes remove the votives from the pan and easily scoop out the wax. Finish washing out residue with soapy hot water. **NOTE** Do not use boiling water. Why? Well, 1) you risk the glass shattering under the extreme temperature, and 2) you do not want to melt the wax, just soften it enough to scoop it out. If you melt the wax to a liquid state in your boiling water and then dump it down the drain, you will end up with a clogged drain.
