Can’t find Strike Anywhere matches at the store? You are not alone! They are getting harder and harder to find in some states and in some countries. I found a great instructable that shows you how to make your own! I have to say tho, I read that the reason why safety matches are getting more popular is because they have a tendency to run together and ignite while storing or transporting.
So To stop this and to make them water proof, let the match dry when converting it and then dip the head of the match into paraffin wax. Then just scrape a side of wax off and then use on any rough surface. The wax will also make the match like a little candle and burn just that bit longer.
