Uses for Left-over Candle Wax?

I never can use all the candle wax at the bottom of a candle jar. What can I do with the 2 inches of candle wax left when the wick burns up?

You can buy wicks pretty cheaply at a craft store and I fill votive cups or small jelly jars with the remaining wax. It doesn't matter if it is the same color or not, but keep filling til you have a new 'jar candle'.

I use them for two things - if the candle is beeswax, I use it to make homemade furniture wax. If it is the petroleum kind, I pour it over my saved dryer lint to make fire starters. I just pull out a handful of the lint with the candle wax in it and throw it into the wood burner and stack kindling over it.

After the wax has cooled pop it in the freezer, usually the wax will come out, I take this chunk of wax and rub it all over the wooden handles of my garden tools and let them sit in the sun it melts into the wood preserving it and my hands are very soft after using the tool from the wax.

I save the candle wax for my daughters open fire in the winter time. It helps to ignite the kindling.
