Extinguish the Flame without Making a Mess

Ever blow out your candle so hard that the soy oil splashes out of the jar or pieces of the burnt wick fall into the melted candle? Here’s a trick to try…use your finger!

No, don’t wet your finger and pinch out the fire! Simply hold your finger upright, halfway between your mouth and the flame,… and blow. This keeps your breath from hitting the flame directly, causing splatters and splashes, while still extinguishing the candle. Try it. You’ll be amazed how it actually works.

Better yet, send us a picture of you demonstrating this technique!
