- Kitchen lighter
- A spoon
WHAT TO DO:-
Light the candle and hold the blade of the spoon at the centre of the flame for a few seconds.
The blade is covered with soot, tiny particles of carbon.
WHY THIS HAPPENS:-
Soot is found in the most central part of the flame. It is caused by the decomposition of the paraffin of which the candle is made.
