Have you ever had a candle in a tall jar? After awhile the wick ends up pretty far down and you can no longer light it with a regular match or a lighter. Countless times I have singed my fingertips trying to reach down that long skinny glass. Or the flame ended up too close to the glass and created ugly smoke marks.
Turns out I already had a simple tool in my bathroom cupboard that solves the problem.
(1) Strike a match
(2) Hold the unlit end of your match with a tweezers
(3) Light the candle
