POUNDLAND HACK| HOW TO REMOVE WAX FROM A CANDLE JAR

POUNDLAND

THE STORE THAT IS YOUR GO TO, TO BUY CHEAP SNACKS AND CLEANING PRODUCTS.

BUT IS IT?

POUNDLAND HAS STARTED TO DIP ITS TOE INTO THE WORLD OF HOMEWARE AND  HAVE  PRODUCED SOME REAL GEMS.

WHO REMEMBERS THE ZEBRA AND  CACTI VASES? I REST MY CASE.

On a recent Poundland dash of my own to buy barney bears and toothpaste I was stopped in my tracks. For months I’ve lusted after the textured glass vase from H&M Home. Don’t get me wrong with the vase range costing under £20 it’s hardly breaking the bank.

Poundland have now released a range of candles in a very similar design to the H&M Home vase and you guessed it they only cost a pound.

Yes my heart did skip a little beat with excitement thinking of all it’s uses. My only issue was, the candle wax. I’m impatient for one and two well there is no two I’m just really impatient and I want to use the jar ASAP.

   I’m a custom to burning the candle at both ends but I didn’t have the first clue how to remove a whole candle wax from the jar.

After chatting with my Instagram followers about the subject and a bit of googling I came up with my plan. Now it’s time to share this information with you.
