I had heard that if you have a candle holder with melted wax in it & you want to get it out, to put it in the freezer & the wax comes right out. I tried it last night & it really does work. I put it in the freezer & this morning took a knife & it scooped right out. Also last week I saw a girl on a show (I think it was on Ellen's show) & she mentioned some $ saving tips. 1 of them was a do it yourself Biore black head remover. Take Elmers glue put it on your palms & rub it on your nose. Let it dry & peel it off & it takes the black heads out. I haven't tried it, so I'm not sure if it really works.
