16. Spaghetti
Long matches are handy for things like lighting fireplaces, lighting a gas stove burner, or catching a wick that's inside a deep candle holder. But if you don't have one handy, you can DIY one yourself with the help of spaghetti. 

Use a piece of dry spaghetti from your pantry as a long match. All you have to do is light the top, and then touch the flame to whatever hard-to-reach place you need to get. Afterwards, make sure you run the spaghetti under water before throwing it out to be safe.
