I mean really. Who does enjoy washing candles?
What? You’ve never washed candles?
Well, I guess it’s just me.
Remember all the talk in the past few posts about my master bedroom and the dust? Well . . . I can avoid dusting shelves for a long time, but I can avoid dusting candles on the fireplace candelabra that’s rarely seen anyway behind the clutter . . . for an even longer time.
But alas, while pulling EVERYthing out of my master bedroom, I had to make a choice. Was I going to keep the candelabra or not?
I decided to keep it.
So I had to clean it. And the candles on it. And simply dusting wasn’t going to be enough.
So off the candles and I went to the bathroom sink where I washed them like I wash the dishes. (Not in the dishwasher, though. I was afraid they would melt!)
And strangely, even though I’d put this off thinking I didn’t like washing candles . . . I actually didn’t mind it so much.
With a little soap and water, dust comes right off of wax.
Who else ever needed to know?
