|deadbodyman||Isnt there a coating inside the bulbs that is very poisonous and getting cut would be very bad ??? Someone told me that years ago so I'm always very careful around them,dont know for suure if its true..|

yes the plastic wrap works, I used it but got lazy and pulled the plastic for a session saying to myself don't forget to recover them and missed a change and eventually back to where it started with bare dirty bulbs..
**Agree the gloves are to be from now on.. thinking just one visit to the emergency room would kill any savings..point taken thanks S10

|deadbodyman||Dam Dinger,Thats a great idea too...|

|dinger||this might be a stupid idea but could a guy wrap the bulbs with some plastic wrap intended for microwave cooking? glad wrap, something like that? Wrap them tightly, they are intended for higher heat for covering casseroles, Maybe? Try one, I'd be interested.|

Nice work! One suggestion though, wear gloves... Broken glass and human skin aren't a pretty combination.

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
