Now I understand why the cfl's I've been using in the washroom don't last very long. On and off time is doing them in.
And I don't like the "glow" in the bedroom after I've turned the power off on them either....
Finally, where I live there isn't any place to properly dispose of them, and when I discussed this with my hardware store and asked why they hadn't started carrying led's the response I got was, there's so "little" mercury in the cfl's, it shouldn't be a problem at our local landfill!!!! Guess he doesn't think of the impact of volume..... especially when they don't last so long in frequent on/off locations.
so I've been going to a store over an hour's drive away and switching to led's and taking the cfl''s with me for for proper disposal as they offer that service. Only take them when I'm already going there for other things.
