Candle wax! You may recall that I am psycho over the 'Fresh Balsam' candles from Bath and Body Works and want to douse my body with the home fragrance oil. Well, when the candles dwindled down to nothing after burning them every night, I couldn't bear to just throw them away. So, I would pop them in the freezer overnight and then go all Sharon-Stone-in-Basic-Instinct on the wax until it was all chopped up. And into a baggie the wax would go, to later be used in this wax warmer thingy....what the heck are these things called, anyway?
This way I still get to enjoy the fragrance of the wax, even though the candle itself is long gone. Oh, and of course I use the leftover glass jar for other things, like holding our acrylics in the art room:Anyway, this is not the point of my post. The POINT is that the wax, while deliciously scented, is also a practical way to help your drawers slide more freely. I grabbed my baggie, took out the largest wax pieces, and started giving the wood drawer supports inside the frame a rubdown they would not soon forget. Boom chicka bow wow! I also rubbed some on the bottom of the drawers themselves.
Then I put the drawers in and opened and closed them a few times. Do not be alarmed if they seem to stick even worse, once the wax is 'rubbed smooth' over a few days, those drawers will slide like a knife through butta!
Problem solved! And that is why I love to chop up candles. It has nothing to do with my repressed aggression.
