Armed With A Plastic Fork

Every once in a great while, I come across some sort of  something that makes me go and get all Martha Stewartish.

That’s what happened a few weeks ago.

I was attempting to remove a melted votive candle from a glass candle holder with a plastic fork because that’s the way I roll around here. I was having little to no luck with that method when I decided to just forget it. Then, I remembered a trick someone mentioned to me to remove a melted candle from the holder.

You know, something easier than prying the melted candle out with a plastic fork as if I had a score to settle.

When your candles have had their last go-round and look like this,

Take them directly to the freezer, (it may even be a good idea to straighten your freezer before placing your candles there, taking a picture of them, and then placing the picture on the world wide web for the whole wide world to see),

Leave them in the freezer for approximately twelve minutes.

Give or take two or three.

Once you retrieve the candle holders from the freezer, gently tap the bottom of the candle holder,

OR, you may choose to poke your plastic fork gently and carefully into the candle,

The candle will ‘pop’ right out of the candle holder.

Replace the jacked up, melted candle with the votive of your choice or the cranberry chutney ones from Yankee Candle.

Light and enjoy.

I say it all the time people, this blog is about so much more than just entertainment.
