Preparing Julie Clarke Candle Vessels for re-use

There are a few ways your customers can clean out their vessels – I will tell you what I do with the Julie Clarke Candle vessels.  Remember all our vessels are porcelain.

Sometimes if I have a few vessels I want to clean out together this is what I do-

  1. Boil enough water in a saucepan so vessels are just sitting in the water (water should come less than halfway up the vessel) 
  2. Let water simmer and pop vessels in for a minute or two depending on how much wax left. 
  3. This will loosen up the wax and it should pop out and you can clean any residue with a cloth.


Alternatively some people do the following;

  1. Pour hot water from the kettle into the vessel
  2. Leave vessel for a few minutes and residue wax should rise to the surface in disc form and you just pop it out. 
  3. Again, clean out residue wax with cloth.
  4. Make sure you do not pour any residue wax down the sink as this will clog up your system and you might have to call a plumber!
