What an utter waste of time these matches are. I notice nowhere in the product description does it say how long these matches are. They are just about 4cm in length. Just room to hold the match without burning yourself if you use them quickly.
Silly me thought the match would be the length of the box but they are the width. In these days of saving resources, what a waste of a tree to make such useless matches.
I got fed up of using lighters, find these so much nicer and easier to use. There are so many here for the price, no messing around with gas and they light easily with maybe one or two failures per pack which is a high success rate in my opinion! I only use them for candles once or twice a week but they are perfect for that.
On two separate occasions a small piece of the head has come off the match as it's been struck, the first time singeing my top and the second time singeing my hair. I won't risk using these matches again!
