The CFL lightbulb has taken over in today's suburban home. Using less than 30 watts to power it and having the same light output as a standard 100 watt incandescent bulb, the CFL is certainly a "bright idea".
Locate the bad bulb and remove it from the socket. This is achieved by grabbing the bulb lightly and rotating counter-clockwise.
Procure a new lightbulb, either from a hardware store, or wherever it is you keep new ones.
Install the new lightbulb into the socket, this time rotating clockwise.
Turn the power on to the light socket by means of a switch or knob.
Congratulations! You have successfully changed a lightbulb! Reward your efforts by getting a cold beverage of your choice.
