Safest way to get a broken light bulb out of a ceilin fixture
two of my bulbs blew out in the kitchen, and when I went to change one, it turned, and then stopped. me ( having NO patience) kept unscrewing, the bulb burst, and fell onto the table. the metal thing is STILL in the light fixture. the remaining burned out bulb feels like it's not going to cooperate either ! any suggestions? if you tell me to turn off the breaker, I can do that , but what should I do to get the ring out? can I use a needlenose plier? HELP! you can see I'm not good at this stuff!!!
