Fluorescent light bulb cleaner

there has just got to be a easier way to save a lightbulb than thinner and a wire brush.. I know bulbs are cheap but when a lot of them they get dirty before their time it pays to save them. I dreaded the thinner bucket and headache let alone time it took
so imagination kicked in.
An old floor buff machine motor is mounted upside down on a stand. A light bulb gets fitted to a rubber collar and is turned like a lath. A razor blade wisks of the overspray in no time saving a lightbulb to shine another day..

Makes this old chore way easier than a brush and thinner.
When you have a lot of bulbs to clean it makes a difference
