Unstick a drawer
If you have a desk or chest drawer that sticks, remove it and rub a candle on the runners. The drawer will open more smoothly when you slip it back in place.
Make a pincushion
A wide candle makes an ideal pincushion. The wax will help pins and needles glide more easily through fabric too.
Weatherproof your labels
After you address a package with a felt-tip pen, weatherproof the label by rubbing a white candle over the writing. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow will smear the label now.
