    PERFORMANCE TIPS:

    • For lighting a match, it is ideal if the striker is a firm surface which can usually be achieved by just closing the box.
    • If striker and box become wet, the striker will still work, but needs to dry first so that the surface is once again firm. Use a spare striker until then.
    • If matches become wet, just wipe dry before use.


     

    SAFETY TIPS:

    • Strike away from the body or in a downwards position. Be careful of bystanders.
    • Be careful when striking the match since sparks can fly off the igniting head.
    • After using the match, run it in water to be certain that it will not light anything else on fire.
