Wicks are so out dated, they are unsafe too. A great article on why they are unsafe and also a safer alternative. http://www.articlesbase.com/womens- ... dles-and-candle-warmers-3189619.html
Make little bags, can be from muslin or calico, anything that has a light weave. Shave or sliver the wax into pieces and stuff the bags and hang them in your closets. You can also give them as little gifts if the bags are pretty and gathered with ribbon. Dollar stores sometimes sell pretty little bags if you don't know how to sew. Vanilla is my favourite and the scent lasts forever. You can buy these little wax filled bags in boutiques and they cost a fortune.
You can buy new wicks from the craft store and melt the candle wax down to make new candles. Sometimes I save the little holder the tea light candles come in and reuse them to make new candles that way. New wicks are nice if you want to give the candles as a gift. I would suggest hitting the thrift store and buying and old sauce pan and measuring cup to use just for candles, too.
