Easy bake ovens used a 100 watt bulb.Another old preventative measure is to put a mechanics lead cord with a 100 watt lightbulb under the sink. The old style lightbulbs generate enough heat to keep things from freezing.
We used to do the same thing with the cars during periods of subzero weather. The lead cord and bulb were put under the hood of the car to keep things warm.
I remember my mother taking off one cold
dark morning without removing the cord, and then the fight started! ?
