It took me more than hour to get the seven bulbs out and I have a blister to show for it. Severe oxidation filled the spaces between the bulb and the holder.

The oxidation is so severe that the phosphoric acid didn't affect it at all. I was able to clean some of them up using the old-school trick of a pencil eraser and while some of them cleaned up nicely, others are just laughing at the eraser.

Any other suggestions?
