It seems I am always cringing while trying to remove a burned-out light bulb from its socket. The thought of the bulb breaking in my hand as I'm trying to un screw it from the socket, which has happened to me on more than one occasion, is not a very pretty picture in my mind. At last, I figured out a solution to my light bulb safety problem. Now, before I put a new light bulb in, I take a dry bar of soap and rub a little on the threads of the bulb. It screws in easily and when it comes time to replace it, it screws out with ease. No more "shattered" thoughts for this homesteader.
