If you want your house to look brighter, and you have already dusted your light covers, try dusting your light bulbs. Dusting the bulbs will give you as much as 50 percent more light. There are a couple of things that you need to keep in mind if you decide to use this idea. The first is that you need to make sure the light is off. This will make it safer to look at up close so you can get all the dust. It will also make cleaning safe since it will reduce the chance of electric shock. Finally, many light bulbs, especially halogen bulbs, get very hot. Make sure to give your light bulbs a chance to cool off before you dust them with your cloth. This precaution will prevent burns, and it will also stop your cloth from being melted on to the light.
