When you have a candle that burns unevenly and wax is left in the jar or in a pillar, you can place the wax in the microwave and melt the wax. If the candle is a pillar, place it in a jar so when the wax melts, you can place the wick into the jar. It is inexpensive to buy a roll of wick at Michael's or WalMart. Cut the wick to the appropriate level of the melted candle and place in the middle of the wax. You have a new candle and your only cost is a few cents for a wick.

Soy wax melts well in the microwave but I wouldn't recommend melting parrafin wax in the microwave. Seriously.
Rather try melting over hot water or in a very low oven and watch it closely no matter what.
