Use black Velcro.

Oh my goodness, I even have some of that! I don't know where it is right now, but I have some...

My husband hangs a sock out of the fuse box door over the frig light but it's got to really BLOCK it, the light shines out of the sides. The thing about velcro is I don't want to look at the fix for it all day.

People on this forum are geniuses!!!

Interesting article about blue lights

I have been putting a little stack of electrical tape over them when we go to bed but tape residue is being left and that's ugly.
Does anyone have a system they use? Does this even bother anyone else? Sleep masks don't stay on, I am trying.

Just read this article:

We installed a track and hung a blackout curtain at the foot of the bed. It was originally done to give us privacy when visiting grandkids were sleeping in the sofa bed. But we use it all the time to block the little lights and the outside light that shines through the door window.

We just got back from a trip. Some!body took my painters tape and museum putty out of the MH. However, for some unknown reason there was some of that putty used to stick posters to dorm walls. I took blobs of that and made caps to cover the offending lights. Worked great. Mission accomplished ... so far.

I think I've used electrical tape to cover more tiny lights on devices in my house, camper, truck, etc. than I've used it for actual electrical work! So many uses for that black tape.

Every time I get a new electronics device I cover all the lights I can. I used to have the F.lux app and forgot about it. My brother has been using "computer glasses" for years. I used to think he was nuts. Turns out he's not.

Uh...OK....Am I the only one who uses a sharpy to 'paint them darker' ?

I use purple for red, green for..uh..green, blue for blue...etc. Darkens them by half AND if you walk up and look you can see if they are on or off.

YMMV!! Worked for me..
