After you’ve burned your candle all the way, you have different options for recycling the vessel it comes in. But whats the best way to approach it? We would like to help you make the right choice and made this short guide below!
How to Reuse & Recycle your VVA Candle:
– The first thing you have to do, is to make sure you get rid off the old wax that’s left in it. By putting the vessel in a bath of warm water, the heat will melt on the outside rim of the wax. When this melts it loosens from the vessel and you can just pop it right out!
– After that make sure you compost the wax (plus the wick that’s left), the foot of the wick can join your old cans and the glass vessel (incl the label and lid) can go with your glass recycling.
– Lastly, if you want to reuse the container, for example because you want to use it to burn new tea lights or for just holding your pens, it’s very simple! You can simply hand wash it with warm water and some washing up liquid, dry it off and it’s as new!
Simple right? We always clean them together with our dishes so it’s even less work! As we say in dutch: ‘een kind kan de was doen!’ Which basically means it’s so simple, a small kid could manage it!
