How to Make a Bubbler Out of Household Items

Many of us battle daily with chores such as eating, sleeping, and common sense. Today I’m going to teach you how to make a tool that will help you battle these acts.

Materials needed:

  • A lightbulb
  • Salt
  • Needlenose pliers

The Process:

  1. First use the pliers to remove the metal plate from the end of the lightbulb
  2. Then hit the black part until it cracks/caves in and remove the chunks.
  3. CAREFULLY remove the filament from the bulb
  4. It is now a good idea to insert the pliers into the bulb to get rid of any glass left over from removing the filament. Be careful not to damage the bulb!
  5. Pour salt into the bulb and cover the hole
  6. “swish” the salt around until the bulb is completely clear
  7. Pour the salt out making sure there is none left behind.

And there you have it. A perfectly good bub.

Additionally you can:

  1. Heat up a silver dollar sized area on the bulb with a torch
  2. Apply direct heat to the center of the silver dollar sized area until it turns red hot.
  3. Blow as hard as you can into the bulb until the area opens creating a “carb”
