Introduction: Removing a Broken LightBulb
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: First Thing's First
Acquire an old sponge. I'm using one from my tile supplies but I imagine any sponge will do. I'd break out as many 'Big' chunks of glass that might cause injury.
Step 2: Secondly,
Twist your sponge to fit inside the fixture's 'Broken Bulb' cramming it in as much as possible. Keep a tight grip on your sponge because it will want to expand back out of the fixture. Please for anyone attempting this method, I hope you grabbed one from the cupboard and not a damp one from the sink. (Dry Sponges Tend To Work Rather Nicely. Damp Sponges Are Shockingly Less Effective). No seriously tho ppl. Dry sponge Only* and do at your own risk I am not responsible for any accidental electrocution or shock. Be sure the breaker is off or at least the light switch is in the 'off' position.
Step 3: Then You,
Twist and twist that da garn bulb until you can get a grip on it. Then remove.
Step 4: Finally,
I'm sure it's obvious... Replace with new bulb. (Wiping off the bulb with a dry clean cloth is always a good precaution as many bulbs can break from heat and the oils left on them from our hands). I hope this instructable was both helpful and informative enough so that u may one day use it
