Can you lay a fluorescent light on its back?
Some compact fluorescent bulbs have notes on the packaging that warn against using them upside down or sideways. Does the same apply to fluorescent tubes?
I have an interior room in which I want to lay a fluorescent tube light on the top of a bookcase, hoping to give some light to the room inexpensively. I plan to leave it on all the time. I was thinking of using a 48 inch two-light strip fixture.
