Vacuum-packed safety matches. Packed in the can head down, with a striking surface inside the lid, matches would remain safe, dry, and rodent-proof. – Ray Shoberg, Milwaukee.
Rodents ate safety matches back in the 1950’s?
When it comes to safety matches, there is no better option than those that are vacuum packed. Vacuum packing is a process that removes all the air from a container in order to extend its shelf life. This process also makes it almost impossible for the matches to be ignited by anything other than the striker on the box.
Safety matches are an essential item for any household as they can be used for lighting candles and lanterns. Vacuum packed safety matches are the best option as they are less likely to spontaneously ignite and are much safer to store.
