How Do You Get a Stuck Light Bulb to Loosen?

Answer

Trying to loosen a stuck light bulb can be extremely frustrating. You don't want to break the bulb in the socket. To loosen a stuck light bulb, simply wrap the bulb in duct tape, leaving enough tape on the ends to form a handle. You can then use this handle to unscrew the bulb.

A stuck light bulb can be frustrating. A piece of duct tape can fix this problem. Make sure the bulb is cool then tear a piece of tape off and press into the middle of the bulb. Fold the tape back to form non sticky handles. Grip the bulb and give it a quick twist in counter clockwise direction. This should loosen the bulb so you can get it all the way out.
