Two-Headed Match

Relightable?

Sometimes when you are trying to light a candle, you don't strike it right and you just ruin the match head, making the match useless. This happens alot especially when you have almost finished the box of matches and the phosphorous strips on the sides of the box have worn away.

Why not put a match head on both ends of the stick?

It would help.

       I prefer the two headed candle.

       Perfect for those who need to burn their candles at both ends.

       I kind of like the frugality of it.

Try this. Take a new pack of matches and fold one match underneath so that the head rests against the striker. Now fold the cover back so that it covers the head resting against the striker and carefully masking tape the crap out of it. If you do it right it makes an explosive throwing star. <c.o.t.>
