Well, first of all remember not to pour wax down your sink drain. Here's what we do in our Candle Science lab:
If you have leftover wax, pour it into a paper cup until it solidifies.
Then you can peel away the paper, remelt and reuse the wax at a later time.
If you have wax to dispose of, pour the liquid wax into a coffee can or other container until it hardens. Then you can throw away the container and wax.
When we are cleaning pots and containers in the lab, we pour out the extra wax and then wipe the container with a cloth or paper towel. Do not use soap or water - alcohol works best.
