Lightbulb Drying


Here is a useful tip.

When you rinse out your emptied burned-out lightbulbs it is helpful to have a drying rack.

If, like me, you do not have such a rack, just take chopsticks you've been saving from Asian takeout and stick them into slots in your salad spinner.

GG and Sally,

Saving: Because there are many things you can do with emptied lightbulbs. I wouldn't want to limit your creativity, but making bud vases would be one example.

Gutting: Because there are fewer things you can do with a non-emptied lightbulb

Rinsing: Because the inside of the lightbulbs is usually coated with a white dust.

Exactly, one could have a bed of bulbs. Myself, I've only got enough bulbs for a cushion.
