什么时候该decorate with holiday lights,没有什么比需要在开始之前解开灯线网络更令人沮丧了。当发生这种情况时,问题当然是起源于上一个假期照明季节结束的,当时灯光被拆下并收起。

Here are a few tips to make your life much easier next lighting season:

检查灯泡是否有故障或故障的灯泡在赛季结束时,他们仍然伸出。只需将它们插入并寻找死灯泡即可。如果您偶尔发现一个不工作的灯泡,请尝试稍微扭动并扭曲它以使其再次工作。如果这没有解决问题,请在每个死灯泡旁边的电线上放一条胶带,以识别其位置。然后拔下灯弦,更换故障或缺失的灯泡。您可以购买便宜的Christmas light testeron Amazon.

Wind up the light strings—don’t just coil them and stuff them back into their original boxes. Several products are available online to make this job easier, or you can make your own winders.

For example, you can wind indoor lights around clothes hangers, or make a simple winder by cutting a V-shaped slot into opposite sides of an 8-by-10-inch piece of cardboard. Just unplug any end-to-end connections and wind one string per cardboard winder.

For both indoor and outdoor lights, you can buy commercial plastic winders, spools, and reels. For instance, the simple plastic winder shown here costs less than $7 online at Amazon and makes quick work of a string of lights.

For a more complete answer, you can buy cardboard or plastic winders and spools that fit into storage containers. A couple of examples are shown on this page—just click the photos if you want to shop for them at Amazon。For really long strings, you can even use a smallgarden hose reel

Be careful with light strings。他们不是很耐用。使他们无法锻炼并不需要太多。请注意不要在缠绕它们时断开或松开灯泡。
