If you’re not a candle person, you can just scroll on to the next hack. But if you are indeed someone who appreciates the ambiance of candles in your home, then this hack will be a good one. Some candle lovers love the look of dripping wax. But some don’t want the hassle of cleaning wax off their plates or furniture. And with salt, you can prevent the drip altogether.
You just need to soak your candles in salt water before you use them. Start by boiling 2 cups of water and add 1/2 tablespoon of salt. For larger candles, you can double this recipe. Once the salt finishes dissolving, you’ll know that the water is completely saturated. Turn off the heat. Add the candles and leave them for at least 2 hours. And don’t forget to dry them before lighting the wick.
