Next time apply petroleum jelly to the insides of the holders before you put the candles in. The wax will pop out for easy cleaning.
  14. Remove watermarks on wood.Your most recent party left lots of watermark rings on your wood furniture. To make them disappear, apply petroleum jelly and let it sit overnight. In the morning, wipe the watermark away with the jelly.

The ants will no longer be tempted by the kibble if they have to cross that mountain of petroleum jelly.
