How do you light a candle without burning your fingers? Every time I try to light the candle it burns my fingers

    Are you using a lighter or matches? You're more likely to burn your fingers using a lighter I think.

    You can get long matches and they're really good, no risk of burning your fingers then, most supermarkets sell them :)

    You could get one of those long lighter things too. I'm not sure what they're called exactly because I just call mine the candle lighter but I think usually people use it for lighting the fire on an oven hob or something? I tip my candles upside down if I use a normal lighter and I've never burnt myself so maybe you can give that a try if you haven't already.
