Repurposing your finished candle jars is a great way to add a creative and sustainable touch to your home. One of our favorite ways to reuse our glass candle jars is by turning them into vessels for summer cocktails.

Here's how you can safely clean out your used candle jars and transform them into stylish, eco-friendly drinkware.


Step 1: Melt away any remaining wax

To easily remove any remaining wax residue, carefully pour boiling water into the candle jar. The hot water will cause the wax to float to the top of the jar. Allow the water to cool and then discard the bits of wax. You can use a spoon or paper towel to wipe away any stubborn wax residue.

Step 2: Remove the wick

Using a butter knife, gently remove the wick at the bottom of the jar. Be careful not to scratch the glass while doing so.

Step 3: Wash thoroughly with warm soapy water

Next, give the candle jar a thorough wash with warm, soapy water. Use a sponge or dishcloth to scrub away any remaining residue, both inside and outside the jar. Rinse it thoroughly to ensure all soap is removed.

Step 4: Reuse as stylish cocktail glass

Voila! Your candle jar is now sparkling clean and ready to be used as a drinking glass. The Corridor Collection of heavy rocks glasses are dishwasher safe and reusable, making them perfect for sipping your favorite drinks in style.
