I was going to suggest that, but the OP is in Michigan, not in Alabama like us! We had temps of 88 degrees last week.You might even be able to leave them sitting on the roof of your car on a warm, sunny day. When that isn't an option, I usually fill one side of the sink with hot water and just wait for it to liquify enough to pour out.
I am in MI too, and we have been getting to the mid 80s lately. Its not like we are north of the Arctic circle.I was going to suggest that, but the OP is in Michigan, not in Alabama like us! We had temps of 88 degrees last week.
Store brand food storage containers in my case. The ones that are easy to handle can accept about 2 pounds of oil or so and stack well in the cabinet where I keep my oils.I poured the melted oils into other smaller containers. I saw no reason to have to keep melting the whole batch over and over. Home Depot sells lids for their pint and quart paint mixing containers, but old lard buckets, or other things will work too.
