Okay to leave an old lamp plugged in?
One of the lamps in my guest room is from the 1960s. We used it for years, but not recently. The two-prong plug looks a little old-fashioned, but fits snugly into the outlet.
I've read that some things shouldn't be left plugged in for safety reasons, but I'm not clear on exactly what things they mean. My guest room is used only rarely, but the lamp is handy to have if I go in there for various reasons. Does it seem as though it would be safe to leave it plugged in?
