REPURPOSING

At Zomething Strange, sustainability takes center stage in our priorities. With a deep commitment to eco-friendliness, we encourage you to embrace the magic of repurposing our containers. Here are some helpful tips to spark your creativity and transform those lovely vessels into something extraordinary.

Candle Wax Removal

Effortlessly clean multiple containers by utilizing the oven method. Begin by scraping out excess wax with a butter knife or spoon. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a rimmed baking pan with foil or parchment paper. Invert the candles on the pan and place it in the oven for approximately 15 minutes. Once melted, carefully remove the pan and, using a towel or pot holder, wipe the inside with a paper towel. Allow the container to cool before cleaning with soap and water.

Alternatively, employ the hot water method for wax removal. Protect the surface with a towel or newspaper, then use a butter knife or spoon to clear out as much wax as possible. Pour hot water into the container, leaving some space at the top. The melted wax will float to the surface. After the water cools, remove the wax, strain the water to eliminate any small wax bits, and refrain from pouring wax down the drain. Scrape off any remaining wax and clean with soap and water.

Please note that the oven wax removal method is suitable for glass containers like our signature amber apothecary jars or clear glass jars. For ceramic or finished glass containers, such as our speckled glass vessels, opt for the hot water method.

Tip: Utilize the removed wax chunks in a wax melter to enjoy the lingering fragrance.


Fine Fragrance Oil Removal

Thoroughly wash room mist bottles with hot soapy water. Rinse and repeat.

Now that those babies are all clean and shiny, it's time to be creative. Our Room Mist bottles can be used to hold your favorite essential oil mixture. We would love to see how you repurpose your Zomething Strange containers. Tag us on Instagram @zomethingstrange or e-mail your pictures to zomethingstrange@gmail.com.

 

CANDLE

We use 100% soy wax and coco apricot creme for our luxury candle line matching it with cotton or wooden wicks.

**Candle Care Guide:

If you want to maximize the burning time, always trim the wick to 1/8'' (3mm).
• Keep candle free of any foreign materials including matches and wick trimmings.
• When not in use, place your candle away from direct sunlight and nearby heat sources.
• Only burn the candle on a level, fire resistant surface.
• Do not burn decorative candle for more than 2 hours at a time.
• To prevent possible heat damage on the jar, you should always stop using the candle when there is only 1/4'' of wax left.
• Once you are done with your candle, it is time to clean your jar and reuse it! Our jars has been thoughtfully designed has a multifunctional piece for your home that can be used for your plants, storing stationeries, hair accessories & so much more!

 

WAX MELTS

Our wax melts are soy blend made from approximately 52% soy and 48% paraffin. We use premium fragrance oils free of phthalates, parabens, and prop 65 chemicals. Hand poured with tons of love!

**These wax melts can be melted in a wax/candle warmer. You can use as much as you'd like, but make sure not to overfill the top as this can cause spillages. The wax can be re-melted until it is no longer fragrant. A reminder to never leave in reach of pets and children. Also, please DO NOT EAT the wax melts!**

REED DIFFUSERS (WITHOUT LOSING YOUR COOL)

Reed diffusers are your best friend for effortless fragrance—minimal fuss, maximum aroma. Here's how to get your space smelling fantastic in no time.

  1. Prep Time: Before setting up, lay a few paper towels under the glass vessel. Trust us, you don't want oil stains on your nice wooden table.

  2. Fill ‘Er Up: If your oil is in a separate container, pour it into the vessel until it's ½ to ¾ full. Leave some space so it doesn't spill over when you add the reeds. Skip this step if your vessel is pre-filled.

  3. Stick ‘Em In: Pop the reeds into the vessel. The more reeds, the stronger the scent (start with 6 to 8).

  4. Flip and Chill: Let the reeds soak for a few minutes, then flip them so the dry ends are in the oil. Spread them out to let the air do its thing. Give it 24 hours to fully kick in.

  5. Keep It Fresh: Flip the reeds once a week to maintain a strong scent.

  6. Scent Boost: Need a fragrance hit? Flip the reeds carefully to avoid spills. Don't go overboard—once every 2-3 days max.

A well-set reed diffuser can last 1 to 6 months, depending on the oil volume. If you need a stronger scent, just add more reeds. Now, go enjoy your hassle-free, fantastic-smelling space! 🌸
