and a lighter doesnt get the p-tex hot enough to use its full potential, the proper way i was taught is to use a torch to light the candle, then try to remove any carbon, which you shouldnt have any if you know how to melt it.
false. it most certainly can be done with a match, i did it tonight actually. you just have to keep it in the blue part of the flame and then once it is lit, keep it low to something (like a scraper) to make sure not to much oxygen is getting to the flame and making it bigger. This keeps the flame on the candle blue and results in almost no carbon build up
