Candles - No Fuss, No Muss

Now that we have turned back the clocks and are getting settled into fall, I can't help but find myself burning candles more often. But if there is one thing I hate, it is cleaning the wax out of a candle holder. The candle holder never looks the same (in my opinion). But thanks to Real Simple magazine, there is an easy way to lessen the mess and clean-up.

By simply spraying a thin layer of cooking spray (e.g. Crisco) inside your candle holder or votive, after the candle has burned, the remaining wax will slip right out. Sounds simple enough...I'll let you know what happens once I have tried it. You let me know what results you get. Good luck!
