How to save your candleholders when the candle wax melts

This is probably the most random post I have done in a while...but I have been super busy lately, and blogging or inspiration has been few and far between. Hopefully, there will be some kind of improvement soon....

I love candles. For years, I'd toss the candle holder once the candle was used up and the wax was stuck all over the sides of the glass container. Somewhere along the way, I read about how to save my glass candle holders.....and friends, let me say it works like a charm.

Here is an example of the candles that will ruin the candle holders once it melts.....I should have taken better pictures, but I think you will get the just of what I mean here.

Now, once the candle is stuck to the glass, it is hard as heck to remove...thus I always tossed mine in the trash or recycle bin.
See how the wax is all over the bottom and side...well, take this and place it in your freezer for about a half hour. This is what it looked like when I took it out of the freezer....

...this is how it looks once the wax POPS out of the glass holder. Never fails to come out once it is frozen, and works every time. Especially works really well on the tall glass cylinder candle holders too. Once the wax pops out, wash and dry and it is good as new!  I don't know if you have known this tip or not, but I figure it might be new to someone out there!! I know....very random.....but it is good useless bit of knowledge!!!
