Have you ever wondered why your wax warmer always has leftover wax, even after the scent has disappeared from your melts? Well, we have. Let’s nerd out!
HOW IT WORKS
Electric wax warmers heat the wax at a low temperature. This temperature allows the fragrance to evaporate into your home, but doesn’t get hot enough to make the wax burn into the air. This means your warming dish will eventually have unscented leftover wax!
It’s very easy to change the wax in your warmer.
We recommend either the hot method or the cold method.
Turn your wax warmer ‘on’ and remelt the old, unscented wax in your warmer. As the wax begins to melt around the edges of the dish, use a paper towel to slide the wax out. Discard the unscented wax (or use it to start your next campfire)!
Alternatively- you can remelt the wax entirely and use a paper towel to soak up the unscented wax. Discard the paper towel.
PLEASE USE CAUTION WHEN HANDLING HOT WAX.
Remove the warming dish with the old, unscented wax from the warmer. Place the dish in the freezer. As the wax cools, it will contract and become smaller in the dish. After 10-15 minutes, remove the dish from the freezer. Wax will pop out easily, you may use a butter knife (with caution) to assist if necessary.
After you’ve removed the wax from your warmer, you’re free to add some new wax melts and get melting again.
