A word of warning, if using one of those white incandescent light bulbs, the white powder inside contains mercury which is a very dangerous substance.

the white powder in an incandescent bulb is a kaolin powder. clay. it's not toxic. there's no mercury in an incandescent bulb.

Yea, it was the "Fluorescent" lamp I meant.

Please cite your source claiming that incandescent bulbs contain mercury.. Fluorescent lamps contain mercury and the white powder in them is phosphorus.   I don't believe incandescent lamps contain anything particularlly hazardous.  (all in the interest of correct information)  :-)

Sorry, English isn't my first language and I mixed up the names. Many apologies, and thank you for correcting me =)

I completely forgot to point this out thanks you so much and don't forget to vote for me thanks so much!!

You're welcome =)
