A question about the amount of light between regular and halogen light bulbs.

Hi everyone,

I just got a new fixture for over my sink in the bathroom. I have 4 60 watt bulbs soft white in there.
However it is hard to see to put makeup on. Would a 60 watt halogen give out more light, or should I just get a higher watt. Thanks

When opening a french door refrigerator, can either door be opened without opening the other?

My daughter's french door refrigerator doors won't stay sealed after only 4 years of use. I was wondering if the fact that the family opens either door, depending on what is needed, may have weakened the mechanism. I personally always open the door to my right before opening the one to my left.

Businesses using the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval without having it.

There is a company in California that is using your Good Housekeeping seal on their website and they do not in fact have your seal. I informed them that they do not have it and they said that it does not matter, and that they are using the seal anyway. The company is EcoWater Central California (559) 439-2006 click here 452 W. bedford Ave #102, Fresno, CA 93711 The person whom I informed is Elaine Bernard Steitz. She is the managing partner. EcoWater Corporate used to have your seal but has not had it in several years. This dealer is new as of 4-18-11. Thank you for your attention to this matter, as I think it is wrong that they are telling their customers that they have the seal when they do not.
