Care of Matches Teach careful use and care of matches. Never throw a match down, burn it up. A mm film can, makes an excellent container for carrying matches. These have a tight lid and are water resistant. Place a tiny roll of emery cloth in the can fora striker when things are wet. Apiece of bamboo makes a good case also. You can make a leather cover for your match case when you do leather craft. To waterproof matches, dip them in shellac or varnish that has been thinned 50%. Thin shellac with alcohol, and thin varnish with thinner. Paraffin melted, makes a good dip also. When lighting matches, have back toward wind and hands cupped. Carry lighted match with flame toward wind, this will tend to force flame up the match. Break match between thumb and forefinger to make sure it is out.
