Hi I am having some trouble with my mold. I got them poured and set up but I am having trouble getting them out of the mold. Any suggestions?

You can either spray the mold with cooking oil OR you can pour hot but not boiling water from a kettle onto the outside of the mold tubes.

Might try pushing the candles from the bottom up til you hear it give(small space) and then they should just pull out, I use to grab the wicking material and pull but then heard about pushing down first, might event try putting in the freezer for a few minutes to help shrink the canldle wax and then attempt again.
