Removing Candle Wax from Jars

What's the best way to remove a large amount of candle wax from a jar that has a much more narrow opening than the base of the candle jar?

I was thinking of letting it sit in boiling water and slowly scooping out with a spoon, but maybe someone here has an idea that will work better.

Your idea of melting the wax and scooping it out with a spoon is good but I can't see it taking out all the wax. If you do that for the majority of wax leaving a layer of wax still on the bottom, place jar in freezer after it cools, freeze thoroughly, remove and the wax should lift right up by prying it with something.

Thanks a bunch, krystieboh! I knew about the freezing but knew it wouldn't work with the amount remaining in the jar I am wanting to remove it from but you make a good point about getting that last bit of residue out and I appreciate it and will be using your suggestion ;-) (11/07/2009)
