| | Re: Problem with heat sealing
Yes, candles/tea lights produce soot. I just use a Scripto View from Walmart or a woodburner, depending on what I'm sealing. I've tried the Bics and also got soot from that, but it's really rare with the Scripto. I don't know if they have different formulas of fuel or it's something else, but it's just something I've noticed over the years. And if you wear one of those rubber thumb protectors, it saves wear and tear when you flick the lighters.
