How To Light Your Jar Candle

Ever have trouble lighting a candle when it's burned down into the jar?   Sometimes the lack of oxygen in that little space makes the flame go out.  And then there's the messy build-up of soot that can happen, too.  Thanks to Cheryl and Gail for this easy, no-mess tip.  Light a strand of (dry, of course!) spaghetti.  It will form  a very small flame that's easy to guide down into the jar.  No messy buildup and the pasta stays lit until the wick catches.   Enjoy your candles!
