When you’ve spent a load of money on a fancy candle, you want to use up every last bit of wax.

But when the wick is burned out and you can’t burn the dregs, what do you do?

Don’t faff around trying to scrape out the remaining wax. Instead, try this simple hack shared by Sara Jones Hough in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains Facebook group.

It requires minimal effort, so anyone can do it.

When you can no longer light your candle, retrieve the wax at the bottom of the jar by pouring hot water into the jar.

The heat will melt the wax, allowing it to collect at the top. Once it sets you can simply remove that nice layer of wax and use it in an oil burner to get the most out of your fancy candle.

If you don’t have an oil burner, you can cut a hole in the wax and pop it on top of a new candle, threading the wick through.

Sara managed to get a chunk of wax that was as thick as the diameter of a 10p coin, so it really is worth giving a go.

She wrote in the Facebook group: ‘Little life hack I’m amazed.

‘Wick had gone on my Yankee candle so I poured hot water into the jar, all the wax goes to the top and once it sets remove and now it can be used in my wax burner. got loads out of it.

‘I can’t believe how many I’ve thrown over the years.’

Sara’s post has received more than 1,000 comments praising her for the trick.

One woman said that rather than burning the remaining wax, she popped it into her drawers and wardrobes to make everything smell lovely.

Another commented to suggest buying cheap wicks on ebay to make mini candles out of the retrieved wax.

Many noted that once you’ve got all the wax out of your candle jar, you can give the container a scrub and use it to store other bits and bobs, so nothing goes to waste.

We’re never throwing out another used up candle again.
