Turn off the fire in the candles by making carbon dioxide (co2) with vinegar and baking soda to later put it in a glass. It's like magic!
--WHAT YOU'LL NEED--
Tall Drinking glass or 16 oz plastic cup
Short Drinking glass or 9 oz plastic cup
Matches or Lighter
Place tea lights in the short drinking glass
Using a long match or safety lighter, light the tea lights while leaving them in the glass
In the tall glass, pour 1/2 cup vinegar
Slowly sprinkle 1/2 tsp of baking soda into the tall glass containing the vinegar. You can dump it all in at once, but be ready for a big eruption!
Let the reaction slow down until the foam has disappeared.
Slowly tilt the tall glass on it’s side over the tea light as if you were pouring the air over it.
If the flame doesn’t go out on your first try, pour another scoop of baking soda into the vinegar and repeat steps 5 & 6
