First I had to test each container in the microwave to know if there was metal. There was so no short cuts there. Used the old chocolate melting system...a boiling pot of water with the candle container in the center.
It worked. Container by container wax was melted, old metal and pieces of wicks and foils removed while I began to pour the melted wax into the chosen container.
The first container carried its fragrance from the melted wax but the second needed some smell added...cinnamon oil for candy making was added. I had to play with food dye! Just can't leave things alone.
They may not be beautiful but they are functional and both smell very good. I had fun wasting time and saving a few dollars...maybe. The job is no longer waiting for me.
I gained four wonderful empty containers.
Wonder what I will do with them?
I bet I can find a use!
