Melt them down in a double boiler. Get two cooking pans, one smaller and one larger. Fill the larger about halfway with water and heat. Meanwhile, put your burned down or used candle wax in the smaller pan and set in the water of the larger pan. That makes a double boiler. Once it is melted down, remove the old wick. Be ready to pour the wax into a container that it can be broken out of once it has hardened. Also have a new wick weighted down at the bottom with a pebble or penny, rising up above the level of the melted wax after it is poured in the molding container.

I've read somewhere that you can use an old pair of pantyhose and rub the candle outsides with it. Is that what you meant? Or like the feedback above, want to make new ones from old?
