Most of us probably had a night light in our bedroom growing up. That little lamp helped chase away monsters and gave us enough light to find our way to our parents’ bed in a thunderstorm. You might not have given it too much thought back then, but a night light can actually pose a risk to your family. Why is that? Well, while it might seem like a small enough device, a night light uses electricity, and a poorly built night light can pose a fire risk, as well as an electrocution risk for your children.
So how can you make sure that you are not putting your family at risk by something as simple as a night light? Well, the first thing to do is to make sure that you buy a quality light. While it might be tempting to buy a bulk pack of five night lights really cheap on the internet, but the problem is that those cheap lights also have very poor craftsmanship. Reading reviews and looking at recalls can help you make a good decision, and when you receive the night light, you should check it carefully to make sure that it doesn’t feel flimsy or loose in any way.
