Usually when a candle is gone, that's it. But when a candle from apidae candles has burnt down, you are left with a beautiful glass.
How to get rid of the remaining wax? It's easy. Simply place the glass in the oven for about 15 minutes at 110 degrees C. Remove it from the oven but careful, it will be hot to touch. Remove the melted wax and the wick holder with a paper towel. But be sure not to pour any wax down the drain...that would cause big problems. If the wick holder doesn't just pop out, you can poke it out with a spoon. Soak the glass in warm soapy water to get rid of any glue from the wick holder on the bottom of the glass. Remove the remaining wax with some oil, doesn't matter what kind, but I wouldn't recommend your most expensive olive oil for this. Then just wash with soapy water. And enjoy your new glass!
