Changing light bulbs that are high up can be scary! You're always in danger of falling victim to a bulb explosion! Check out this tutorial to show you a MacGyver style way to make a device to help prevent this.
This device works equally well on incandescent bulbs and spiral CFLs (compact fluorescents). For very small bulbs, fold the t-shirt twice before inserting it. For other shapes like long skinny CFLs you might try the same methods but with differently shaped bottles.
