Leftover oil and wax in the menorah


The oil or wax which remains in candle-holders at the end of Chanukah should not be used for any other purpose. It should be disposed of respectfully, such as by burning it.

Note, though, that if you put in more fuel than was needed for the flame to last for the requisite time, and you had always planned to use the leftover fuel for other purposes, then you may indeed use that remaining fuel for other purposes.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 677:4; Mishneh Berurah 677:18)

Have a great day,
