How to Clean Candle Wax Off Votive Holders?

If any one knows how to do this, I am sure it is one of you guys!

To make a long story short...I have about 100 votive holders that I used for my engagement party...figured why throw them out...I can use them again for the wedding.

Problem is, I need to get the existing candle out (figured I can wedge it out with a knife), but then I need to clean them...

Anyone know what the best way (if there is one) to do this???

Thanks girls!!!!

To get candles out, I usually put the holder in the freezer for a little while, then it will pop right out with little or no help from a knife. Now, granted, you have 100 of these...do you have a garage? That might be cold enough.

To get the rest out, windex and a paper towel works really well for me. (edited to add, if it's really stubborn, I do this while running it under hot water) Cleans the wax out and makes the holder sparkle!

Geez, I sound like a bad ad! Good luck, I hope that helps you a little!

put them in the freezer and they fall out...my fsil does this all the time..then maybe with the wax frozen you can just scrape it off the outside..but the candle should fall out in the freezer..hope this helps

wedge the rest of the candle out and then put them in the dishwasher- top rack. They will come out sparkly.

Yeah, you have to put them in the freezer. It doesn't take too long either.
