Cleaning Glass Candleholders

Getting things back in order for my Sunday School classroom. Here is a tip for getting the last melted stub of a beeswax candle out of a glass candleholder: simply put it in the freezer for a day! The wax will contract due to the cold, which causes it to slightly loosen its grip on the glass. Give a firm tug and it should come right out. However, bear in mind that being in the freezer will make the glass more fragile. Please be careful.
