I had to edit my original post to get the image to show up. I put the open candle on a stove to heat it up and burn of any residual wax and then use some harsh cleaning products on it to get all of the candle scent out. after 2 runs through the dish wa you cant smell anything.
Don't forget that its not just about having a jar that is scent free, its also about having a jar that provides proper storage conditions.
If you go through your tobacco fast it might be alright, but keep in mind that those jars are not meant to provide much of a seal...
In my opinion, it sounds like you've gone through a lot of trouble to try and salvage some jars of questionable utility.
If it works for you then that is fine, but I'd personally prefer something with a guaranteed seal that was food grade and that I didn't have to use heavy chemicals to clean.
"In my opinion, it sounds like you've gone through a lot of trouble to try and salvage some jars of questionable utility."
I was thinking the same thing.
But I guess you gotta put your Waylon stickers on something.
Foggymountain, I knew someone else had to be doing this! glad to get some validity. I've never had any problems getting out smell or having the tobacco dry out. I only have 3 of them and I fill them with the tobacco that i regularly smoke. I do use mason jars for the tobacco i intend to make it past the apocalypse..
