This process is a little time consuming, but it is a great way to use those slightly flakey, dirty or sticky (eek) solid colored Christmas bulbs that you come across. You can usually find these second rate bulbs pretty cheap, and the transformation is awesome. People love the mercury glass because the neutral silver non-color goes with everything and they have an awesome patina.
Gently dry (holding stem down for goodness sakes!) with a cotton dish towel. Set aside for a final drying in the rack (yes, with the stem down!) Give the bulbs several hours like this before replacing hangers. I promise you, you'll be hooked.
