How can I clean tart wax from the burner?
By Neets from Beaumont, TX
Freeze it then just take it off with a case knife. When I want to change out my tarts I put it in the freezer then just pop mine out and keep them in a ziplock bag to rechange a scent.
Ditto for the freezing! I learned it from my MIL. =)

I love to use tart burners. I now buy votive candles and cut them in half, pull out wick and metal wick holder and use instead of buying the tarts.
For the people that don't know what a tart burner is, it's like a potpourri burner except it's for scented wax. I use a mug warmer and an old mug. I made fruit scented wax in fruit shapes that I put in a bowl beside my warmer and every once in a while I toss a piece of fruit in the warmer. I have a puppy at my house and using the warmer means I don't have to worry about him bumping into the table and knocking over a lit candle. So I get the benefit of the candle without the flame.
