SMOKE MATCHES

The Family Handyman - - HOME CARE+ REPAIR -

Reg­u­lar test­ing of smoke de­tec­tors is a must. If you’re skep­ti­cal about the value of just press­ing the “test” but­ton, try smoke matches for a more real-world test that doesn’t in­volve puff­ing on a cigar near your de­tec­tor. Smoke matches are typ­i­cally used for test­ing air­flow in HVAC sys­tems. They’re a bit pricey at $20 for a pack of 25 matches, but still cheaper and less smelly than 25 cigars.
