Cleaning a fancy, metal candle holder

  • Candle wax softens and melts below the boiling point of water
  • Heat up water in a kettle, heat a cup of water in a cup, or if your kitchen water is properly hot, use the kitchen faucet
  • Using gloves to manipulate the holder flush the holder with boiling water
  • Use a spoon (preferably plastic) to scrape away the softening wax
  • Run the faucet into hard to get at nooks and crannies
  • This will do less damage to the holder than scraping it with a hard object like a knife or scissor
