how to remove wax melts

Do you know how to use wax melts?

Antique Candle Co.™ melts are made with natural soy wax and a blend of find fragrance oils. AND they are hand poured, just like our candles! 

These small wax cubes are an amazing way to fill your home with sweet, floral, and fresh fragrances that you and your family love! 😍 (Without the flame!)

When it comes time to switch out the wax in your melter for a new cube, there is definitely a trick to doing it right! You can’t mix the cubes because that would make the fragrance weaker, so how do you remove the used wax from the melter? 🤔

Here are our top two tried, tested, and mess-free Antique Candle Co. (previously Antique Candle Works) wax melt removal hacks: 🙌


1. Ribbon

After you've enjoyed all the yummy fragrance and your wax cubes are completely melted, shut off the warmer and carefully place one end of a ribbon into the wax. 

Allow the wax to cool completely and harden. Once the wax is solid, simply lift it out using the ribbon. If the solid disc breaks apart while lifting out the wax, just pick out the broken off pieces.

This hack is super easy, mess-free, AND you don't have to worry about that HOT wax! 👏👏


 2. Cotton Balls

This hack not only removes the left over wax from your melter, but it also cleans out the dish!

Again, once you've enjoyed all the fragrance in your melts (each cube lasts 10 hours, girl! YAASS! 💃) just turn on your melter and melt down the wax. 

Once the wax is completely liquefied, add 1 or 2 cotton balls to the melter dish. We added 1 cotton ball for every wax cube.

The cotton balls should easily soak up most of the wax! Once the wax is absorbed you can wipe out the dish, throw out the cotton balls, and add that Georgia Peach melt we both know you've been craving. 😉🍑  

If you're anything like me, you use your melter ALL. THE. TIME. That might means it needs a little bit of a deep clean...

If you have built-on wax or residue, simply use a bit of rubbing alcohol and a clean cotton ball to wipe out the dish. You can also break out a trusty magic eraser! 💪

There's literally no such thing as too many melts!

Especially when those melts are hand poured in Lafayette, Indiana. 🤩
