I love candles. I don’t burn candles during any time other than fall and, of course, the Christmas season.
Yankee Candles are my favorite so far, and the new Pumpkin Buttercream is amazing!
I bought one a few weeks ago and it’s already gone. I was quite sad when I tried to light it and it had already reached the end of the wick.
I decided to get every last minute out of that candle that I could.
The wick on my Farmer’s Market was still pretty long, as I hadn’t trimmed it for its next use. (A tall wick is imperative for this particular trick to work).
Then I veeeeeeeeerry carefully poured the molten liquid into the Farmer’s Market candle, making sure not to fill it past the wick.
See? Empty candle with nothing wasted.
(Disclaimer: You can get hurt doing this. Yankee Candle would not recommend that you try this, so please take that into consideration. I’ve done this several times and I just keep in mind that melted candle wax is really hot. Do the same, and you’ll be fine.)
