Reach up into the light canister. Unlike standard incandescent bulbs, halogen kitchen light bulbs frequently sit inside a canister, so the bulb itself isn’t exposed below the ceiling. You can, however, access the bulb when you reach into the canister.
Grab the halogen kitchen light bulb with a paper towel between your skin and the bulb. If you plan to use the bulb somewhere else, the oils on your fingertips can potentially ruin the halogen kitchen light bulb.
Turn your halogen kitchen light bulb to the left until it unscrews from the canister.
Things You Will Need
- Paper towel
- Halogen bulbs burn much hotter than a standard incandescent bulb, so make sure you turn the halogen kitchen light bulb off about 30 minutes before you need to remove it. This helps ensure the bulb is cool to the touch when you need to finish your task.
