A TikTok user goes viral after sharing his tip on how to light a candle without getting burned.
The tip, which now has over 6.5 million views, is courtesy of a popular creator named Sidney Raz (@sidneyraz). Raz rose to fame for sharing all kinds of mind-blowing tips on the app, including how to really use an airplane pillow, how to tie up your running shoes, and how to squeeze unpopped kernels out of your popcorn.
Raz’s latest viral clip shows how to easily light a candle with multiple wicks.
“Years of anxiety released,” Raz captioned the post.
In the video, Raz shows how to light a candle without getting burned on other wicks. First he lights a wick, then he simply tilts the candle to the side – using the first wick to light all the others.
“You don’t turn them on one at a time,” Raz says in the clip. “You light one, then you use it to ignite the others. “
TikTok users were largely blown away by the trick, with many reviewers saying they had no idea it was possible.

“Do I fight and burn my finger for no reason?” Asked one user.
“They should come with instructions,” added another.
“At this point, I’m pretty sure you’ve taught me more than my parents,” wrote another.
Others, however, argued that Raz’s hack barely made a difference.
“Or you can just use a candle lighter… those with a long nozzle to light grills or fireplaces,” one user suggested.
“Some three-wick candles have the wicks too far apart,” added another.
