How to Maintain a Candle Holder

Posted by Leisel Sandler on

Candle holders are an elegant and timeless addition to any home decor. Their flickering light can create a warm and inviting ambiance, making them a popular choice for special occasions or everyday use. However, to keep your candle holders looking their best, it's essential to properly store, maintain, and upkeep them. Here are some tips and tricks you need to know to ensure your candle holders remain in excellent condition for years to come.


Keep it clean  

Before lighting the candle, apply a thin layer of olive oil to the bottom of the candle holder. This creates a barrier and prevents the wax from adhering. If your holder already has accumulated wax, you can mix olive oil with dish soap to effectively clean it out.


Prep it properly

Try rubbing a small amount of petroleum jelly inside each holder before placing the candle. As the candle burns down, you'll find it much easier to remove any remaining wax, making holiday clean-up faster and more convenient.


Remove wax from metal candlesticks

If you have small bits of wax stuck to your metal candlesticks, a simple solution is to run them under hot water. The heat will melt the remaining wax, allowing you to easily wipe it away.


Prevent votive candles from sticking

Votive candles may leave a wax residue that can make them stick to their holders. To avoid this, add a little sand or water to the bottom of the holder before lighting the candle. This prevents the wax from creating a mess at the bottom and helps keep the candle easily removable.

By following these maintenance tips, you can ensure that your candle holders remain clean, free from wax buildup, and ready to use for any occasion!
