How to Clean Your Wax Melt Burner?

If you're a fan of wax melts, you know how convenient they are. Just pop one in your burner, let it melt, and enjoy the aromas! But what happens when your burner starts to get a little dirty? Here's a quick and easy guide on how to clean your wax melt burner.

How to clean your wax melt burner?

First, start by taking all of the wax out of your burner. If there are any stubborn pieces that won't come out easily, you can put the burner in the freezer for a few minutes to harden the wax and make it easier to remove. Once all the wax is out, give your burner a quick wipe-down with a damp cloth to remove any residual wax.

Next, it's time to clean the inside of your burner. The easiest way to do this is to fill it with boiling water and then let it sit for a few minutes. After a few minutes have passed, drain the water and use a cotton ball or q-tip to remove any remaining residue. If necessary, you can repeat this step until your burner is completely clean.

Finally, place a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball or q-tip and wipe down the heating element on the bottom of the burner. This will help remove any built-up residue and keep your burners functioning properly.

That's all it takes to clean your wax melt burner! A quick wipe-down on the outside and a deep cleaning on the inside every once in a while will keep your burner looking and working like new.

Or…. You could just use gel wax melts! 😊
