How to light candles that have burned way down


Tired of tossing half used candles? Or burning your fingers attempting to light them? Chances are, you have what you need to light those tricky glass encased or pillar candles in your pantry, right now: an uncooked spaghetti noodle.

Simply light the noodle with a match or lighter and use it as a safe extender to light those hard-to-reach wicks.

Pro Tip: One you’ve successfully lit your candle, make sure to put┬áthe noodle under the faucet to snuff the flame and make sure it doesn’t smolder.
