When you strike the match, you wanna make sure to pick off the wax around the match head. if not, theres a good chance you'll ruin your sandpaper striker. Strike Anywhere Matches are what you want this lil project

I compared a regular matches against wax dipped matches. The wax waterproofs the match head pretty well & if the match is submerged in water for more than 5-10 minutes, it might be ruined. It protects them from any short-term exposure to water. The wax also allows a match to burn longer cuz the wood doesn't burn as fast with the wax.
