You have a bowl of water. Placed in the center of it is a paraffin candle. The water level is below the top of the wax by about a few milliliters. How can you use any ONE common household object so that when the candle is lit, the wick will go below the water level with the fire still going? A lighter is provided.


Wax floats on water.
