Fire and Ice

This idea came to me from my friend, Joani, who watched her mom do this nifty bit of trickery many times ~

If you just can’t seem to get that stubborn candle nub out from your favorite glass candle holder, just put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes or so….or if you’re like me, a couple days until you remember where you put it after you’ve looked for it for the original 20 minutes.  But I digress.

When you take it out of the freezer, just run a knife around the edge of the candle and it will pop right out!

I do recommend waiting until the glass has come to room temp or run it under hot water before lighting the new candle in it.

This stuff is amazing for transforming old, beat up frames into bright, shiny new-ish ones!

And here’s a super duper helpful cleaning hint ~ use it on stainless steel.  Not only does it shine it up without streaks, it smells nice too.
