Changing wax melts when the warmer is on:
To change wax melts if the warmer has been on for a while and the wax is in liquid form, take 1-2 cotton balls, place them inside the warmer, allow it to absorb, and dispose of the cotton balls when you are done. If any residue is left, wipe the remainder of the wax with a paper towel. This is the ideal method if your warmer does not have a removable lid or is a wall plug-in.
Alternative to cotton balls:
Provided that you don’t have any cotton balls available you can use a spatula. Turn off your wax melts warmer and wait a few minutes until the wax cools down. You still want it to be warm just not completely liquid. Take your spatula, scoop out the wax, and throw it away.
If your warmer is off:
In case the warmer is off, turn it on for about five minutes or enough until only the bottom portion is no longer completely hardened. You can then easily pull out the wax and discard.
Electric warmer liner:
A very convenient way to change wax melts is to use a wax warmer liner or wax warmer popper liner. All you have to do is place a popper liner in your wax warmer tray before putting the wax melts inside of your warmer and be blessed with an easy clean up! There are disposable and reusable liners available. Not only do these make change wax melts easier, but wax warmer liners contribute to keeping your wax melts in great condition.
