  • when lighting candles at the candlesticks, roll up the sleeves of your clothes;
  • hold a piece of paper or a handkerchief under the candle so that hot wax does not get on the skin, and you instinctively do not jerk your hand and drop the burning candle on your clothes;
  • tie your handkerchiefs tightly and remove your hair, otherwise you risk being hurt by the fire by tilting your head;
  • supervise children so that they do not keep a burning candle near your clothes;
