5 weird ways to put out a candle
How to Put Out a Candle with Your Fingers
Light your candle.It should be at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) high and freestanding. Make sure you can pull your hand away quickly.
Lick your fingers.This is an important part of the process! Do not skip it! Licking your fingers adds a layer of water that protects your skin from getting burned
Place your hand about 1 inch (2.5 cm) away from the flame/wick.
Quickly grab the wick and then let go.This should put out your flame. If it does not, blow out your candle, shorten your wick and try again.
Eventually with practice you can do this without licking your fingers, but you must master the timing first.Be warned!
