    How do you remove wax from candle holders?

    Do you know how to remove wax from candle holders?  I'm wondering whether there's some secret to cleaning them well and quickly.

    If they're microwavable, nuke them and then wipe them out. If they're not, put them in a pot of boiling water and wipe them and the pot before the wax can harden again.

    There may be a better way but I just throw them in the freezer for a bit and the wax becomes brittle and just breaks off. Good luck to you!

    I like the idea of putting them in the freezer and break it off. Normally I just grab a knife and start carving it off the glass.
