    Default Corroded Light Sockets

    How do you prevent rust from forming in bathroom and outside light sockets, where they're exposed to high moisture?

    I remodeled the bathroom about 18 months ago and replace all the fixtures then. While replacing a bulb the other day, I found not only the sockets, but the bulbs too have a consideral amount of corrosion formed on them.

    Is there anyting that can be applied to the treads of the socket and or bulbs to prevent corriosion in these environments?

    You might look at a product called dielectric grease ... something I use for all automotive electrical , trailer wiring connector , light sockets , etc..
    This can be found at any automotive part suppliers or even Ace hardware.

    Now ... I'm not certain if it's NEC approved.

    Just a thought.

    Is adding an exhaust fan to reduce/remove the moisture an option for you?
