Light A Candle the Safe and Easy Way

light a candle

Light a candle that’s hard to reach without burning your fingers.

Matches and lighters can be hazardous to your fingers, especially if you’re reaching into a jar or up to a candle holder. When you’re lighting a candle–especially one that’s deep inside a tall candle holder or at the top of a chandelier–use a stick of spaghetti!

Light a stick of dry spaghetti pasta, then use that to light the candle. You’ll keep your hands safe from the flame, and you can reach into a jar or up to a hanging candle holder without turning a romantic evening into a trip to the ER.
