Stage no. 1
Open the box and take out a match. Next, close the matchbox so that the remaining matches do not fall out when lighting the match. Turn the box over so that the striking surface faces upwards.
Stage no. 2
Light the match by rubbing it energetically against the striking surface, always away from yourself, so that you avoid burns by potential bits of the head section.
Stage no. 3
After using the match, extinguish it and place it in an ashtray or a dish made of inflammable materials (glass or metal). If you want to throw the extinguished match into the bin, immerse it in water first.
