3 Brilliant Ways To Repurpose your Glasshouse Fragrances Jars

We delight in seeing customers come up with creative ways to reuse their candle jars. From holding cotton buds to storing spices, each empty vessel can be reused in dozens of ways thanks to the iconic
Glasshouse Fragrances lid and air-tight rubber seal.  
A quick Google search will tell you there are a myriad of methods for cleaning every last skerrick of wax from candle jars. This is the approach we recommend: First, wipe out the vessel while the wax is still warm. If you need to, you can soak the jar in hot water first (avoid boiling water as it might crack the glass). Next, hand wash it as you would any glass, with dishwashing detergent and water. You could also pop it in the dishwasher. Repeat the process until the vessel is free from any wax.
Now you’ve got a sparkling clean vessel, what should you do with it? Here are a few of our favourite ideas.
 
 
IDEA #1. BEAUTY STORAGE
Is there a more beautiful way to stash utilitarian cotton pads and q-tips than in a stylish Glasshouse Fragrances glass vessel? Not if you ask us! The perfect size to hold all your skincare essentials, our jars are also handy for storing makeup brushes, eye and lip pencils, nail clippers and files, perfume atomisers, hair clips and more.

 
IDEA #2. TIDY YOUR DESK
If your spare pens could use a new home, consider repurposing one of your old Glasshouse Fragrances vessels as a makeshift desk organiser. The generous size allows for maximum storage while the transparent glass means you can see what’s inside (because everyone has a favourite pen, right?). Group a few for a pleasing vignette.
 
IDEA #3. ADD A PLANT
Keep things easy and choose a plant that doesn’t require drainage like a baby snake plant, pothos or small anthurium. (Tip: Steer clear of anything that doesn’t like ‘wet feet’.) Fill the vessel with potting soil then add your seedling. If you’re worried about overwatering, use a glass drill to add a drainage hole and sit on a saucer
