How Often Do You Clean...Light Bulbs

Welcome to week 4 of the How Often Do You Clean It...Series! I am so glad that you have joined me on this journey to clean up and clean out the neglected spots of your home.
I am having so much fun...yes fun...exploring areas of my house to find dirt.
I never thought I would actually seek out dirt....but it is definitely making me more aware of how dirty our house gets even when we keep it UBER clean.
I wish I could claim this one as my own, but I cant...yesterday I was reading House Beautiful online and found the artice 13 Spring Cleaning Tips, which are all very helpful, the last tip went off like a light bulb in my head...
Tip 13: Clean your light bulbs!
 I can honestly say I suppose I have wiped a light bulb or two down before when dusting the fan or lamp but I have never actually taken the time to really clean the light bulbs. And why not?
Don't you love the look of a new bright and shiny light bulb in your fixture as much as I do???
Then why not clean them periodically??? 
After reading this I went to check out my light oh man I am surprised the fuzz didn't set fire.
Not only is this a health hazard and a home hazard this is a violation of the too much fuzz rule! 
So this week get a damp rag and go to town, take out the bulbs, wipe them down and enjoy the cathartic effect it has on you!

So now as I do every week, I must ask...How Often Do You Clean...the light bulbs?
Seriously, as often as me? (NEVER)
After you cleaned them were you totally amazed at how light and bright they were again!?
