Genius: This is the reason why you should light a piece of spaghetti on fire!

With spaghetti, you no longer need those long matches!

You know those long glasses you can put candles in? They’re super popular, but how on earth do you light those candles properly? Without a long match it’s practically impossible to do it without burning your fingers. Luckily, there’s a handy trick to easily light that candle anyway!

We had no idea this was possible!


All you need for this trick to work is an uncooked piece of spaghetti. It might sound strange, but it really works! Take the piece of spaghetti and light it with a lighter or a short match. You’ll see the end of the spaghetti-strand will catch on fire. You’ve just made your own long match!


Do be careful when you use this method. These thin pieces of pasta are very brittle so when you bump it into something chances are it’ll break. So, it’s important to be very careful! Want to see how this works? Take a look at the video below:
