Using candles tip

Oops!  I almost forgot about the Tuesday Tip.

Candle Holders: To prevent the wax from melting and sticking to the inside of a votive candle holder, pour a bit of water in the holder, then place the candle on top. If you forgot the water and there's wax stuck to your candle holder, popit in the freezer for an hour. The wax will chip right off.

Candle Wax: To remove wax from carpeting or other fabric, first scrape away any excess. Then, place a brown paper bag over the wax and run a warm iron over the bag. The wax will melt right into the bag! Continue moving the bag around as you pick up the wax so you are always using a clean section. If a little grease stain remains on carpet, sprinkle with baking soda and allow to sit overnight before vacuuming, which will remove the grease residue. If colored wax leaves a stain on carpet, blot with spot remover or carpet cleaner, following label directions.

I hope you're having a good day.  Mine has been so-so.  I'm just so tired for no apparent reason.  I could go to sleep right now, if that was possible.

Aww Jill, you have to make time for yourself too.  You give so much to your family, but if you don't take care of you, then there's nothing left for them.  I know it's hard....but try?  Sue :)

Good tips. Had to remove colored wax from outdoor capet before and it was not easy even doing all the things here. The color made it worse but I finally got it out. Hope you get your energy level back up:)..........alice
