Stuck Bulb Prevention
We’ve all been there: A lightbulb breaks away from its base when you try to remove it, and then you’re stuck with broken glass and a tough-to-get-out bulb base. You can solve this problem easily (especially in damp areas like porches and bathrooms) with Bulb & Socket Lube. I just smear a dab on the threads of the base and tighten the bulb as usual. Look for Bulb & Socket Lube at your home center or hardware store. —H. Ed Chapman Sr.
