Pop your container in the freezer and leave in there for about an hour or two. Take container out and set on a towel or other soft surface then with the tip of a butter knife, gently press down to break the wax. Be careful not to press to hard and break the container. Break up wax in several different places. Pieces of the wax should come right out. Gently scrape container sides/bottom with the knife to remove any left over wax. To avoid breakage of container, WAIT for container to reach room temperature then wash with warm soapy water.
Turn toaster oven on "warm" setting and place container in oven. DO NOT LEAVE UNATTENDED. Wait until wax is completely liquefied then carefully remove container using a potholder and pour into a disposable container (e.g. plastic cup, tin can, etc.). NEVER POUR WAX DOWN THE SINK.
NOTE: Container will be VERY hot! Hold container with potholder and carefully wipe away excess liquid wax with a clean paper towel. WAIT until container is touchable then wash with warm soapy water.
Bring water to a boil then pour water into container until all left over wax is fully submerged. Wait until wax is softened. Take a butter knife and scrape wax off bottom and sides. You will know it's soft enough when wick base lifts easily. Stir up all wax until no more is stuck to container. Gently pour water/wax into a disposable container. NEVER POUR WAX DOWN THE SINK. Once container is touchable, wipe away excess wax with a clean paper towel. Then wash with warm soapy water.
Once container is empty, hold container under warm/hot (as hot as you can take) so that the water is continually running over label. As water is running over label, gently start pealing the corner of the label ensuring that water is reaching the underneath of the label as you are peeling. This will loosen up the adhesive and allow for easy removal. Peel away and wash area with warm soapy water to remove residual adhesive.
