When we have enough old candle ends saved up, we melt them down to create new candles, with the rescued wax.
I like to think MacGyver would be proud:
No, I don't want to argue about them.
While I prep the molds, Todd chops the candle stubs into smaller chunks, removes anything that isn't wax, and creates his own version of a double-boiler--
These candles are a little off; so the fit right in, over here.
Obviously, we aren't pros at this, or even hobbyists, and some of our methods are decidedly MacGyver-gone-Jackass. So, if you want to try this at home, please do your research first, because there are safer ways to pull it off.
