To prevent outdoor light bulbs from sticking in the socket, rub a thin coat of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on the threads before inserting the bulbs. They will unscrew very easily.

The bulbs in recessed ceiling lights often get stuck and are difficult to get out - sometimes almost impossible. An electrician recommended that I smear a little vaseline/petroleum jelly on the screw-in base of a new bulb when I put it in. This completely fixes the problem and when it's time to replace the bulb, the old one comes out easily!
