Rose et Marius Tumblers--dishwasher safe???

KathleenA57KathleenA57 Posts: 163Member
I just received an ReM tumbler set that I bought from Frontgate. On the information card that came with it, it said to "put it in the dishwasher" after the candle is finished. I don't know, but this doesn't seem like a good idea to me. Has anyone tested this out?

    Maybe contact ReM? That doesn't seem right to me, isn't it going to scratch the exterior?

    I'm pretty sure the gold/silver trim is not dishwasher safe

    I asked RetM customer service this question several months ago. I was told that the tumblers are dishwasher safe (top rack only). But then the rep told me that she handwashes hers. I took that to mean that I can use the dishwasher, but I should handwash.

    :wink:

    I've been wondering how to get the wax residue out once the candle is finished. Anyone have tips on that? My first thought was hair dryer cuz that works awesome for my wax tarts after they harden but I know candle wax is a whole new ballgame....

    @janemockingjay
    Someone posted this previously... but I can't remember who - but I was so excited to have details that I copied and pasted it into my notes

    Tips on easy candle remnant removal from the ceramic containers: 
    1) wipe out all the soot with paper towel
    2) put in the freezer at least overnight to let the wax harden and use a knife with a rounded, dull edge to carefully break up and remove the remaining wax - do NOT try to use the knife to remove the metal candle-wick base, it's attached with some wicked persistent adhesive
    3) cover the metal wick base with rubbing alcohol and let sit for a few hours and then use the knife to remove the base and any remaining adhesive
    4) wash well and fill with hot water and let sit for an hour or so and then the label on the bottom will remove easily.
    5) enjoy your container!
