Eight nights of hot wax

Hanukkah is over. Eight nights of digging candlewax out of the little holders. I'd like to keep the wax out of the holders. I need a menorah condom.

I know about hot soapy water to clean up the menorah at the end of Hanukkah. And the putting it in the freezer trick. What I hate is digging the wax out of the candle holders every night. I've tried wrapping aluminum foil around the base of the candle to make wax retrieval easier, but the candles are usually such a tight fit that this doesn't work. I don't want to use anything really thin, like Saran Wrap, for obvious reasons. Is there anything I can use as a barrier to keep the melted wax out of the menorah? Or do you have any suggestions for easy wax-digging?
