Halocho #1004 - Leftover oil and wicks from Chanuka

Oil that was put in the Chanuka Menora and was not burnt, as well as wicks that were used and candles that didn't burn fully should be burnt after Chanuka.

Since they were set aside for the Mitzva of Chanuka they cannot be used for any other purpose.

If one had the explicit intention to use the leftovers, then they need not be burnt.

Today is the last day of Chanuka; don't forget עַל הַנִּסִּים !
