I want to use the structure "blow something + preposition" with "the candles", but I don't know the preposition that express "to make a fire stop burning".
- off (preposition) down or away from a place or at a distance in space or time
- I fell off the ladder.
- Keep off the grass!
- used to say that something has been removed
- You need to take the top off the bottle first!
- I want about an inch off the back of my hair.
- away from work or duty
- He's had ten days off school.
"off" is a preposition, but the dictionary doesn't say anything about fire, I also think about the adjective "extinguished", but it sounds bizarre.
Can we say "to blow the candles off" or "extinguished"?
