Sort of the reverse of what this forum is about, but so many purchased jar candles come in pretty jars that I'd love to repurpose for storage, terrariums, or crafts. What is the best way to really clean the inside of the jar after removing the majority of the wax? Some candles seem to leave an oily residue that just doesn't want to scrub out - I've tried cleanser (such as Ajax), bleach, dish soap - nothing seems to work effectively. Is there anything not dangerously caustic or do I just have to keep scrubbing forever and ever?
