Hints from Heloise: Drop a CFL? Don’t panic – just evacuate the house

DEAR HELOISE: Please tell people to read the information on the box of the compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) that we must use now. You can’t buy the “regular” light bulbs anymore. (Heloise here: On Jan. 1, the final government phasing out of incandescent bulbs went into effect. You will no longer be able to buy them, unless there is some stock in stores. Americans will be able to purchase only the more energy-efficient CFLs or LEDs.)
