These 3 easy steps work for cleaning glass tealight cups as well as metal and ceramic candle holders and accessories:
- Remove as much wax as possible by scraping and/or chipping it away. If there is a lot of wax, it may help to put the item in the freezer for a few hours first.
- Soak in very hot water. To avoid cracks, make sure to allow glass or ceramic accessories to return to room temperature before this step.
- While the holder is hot from the water, wipe away any remaining wax residue with a piece of paper towel or a lint free cloth
