If you are not afraid to get a little dirty ;)

It's really pretty easy, just remember to not touch the glass on the bulb with bare hands/fingers. The oils on your skin will destroy the the life of the bulb.

Note: if you accidental touch the bulb you can clean it off with some rubbing alcohol and a paper towel, this will help it last longer.

RE: cleaning it off... I hear a paper towel can scratch the glass of the bulb (ever so slightly). You might try something softer like cloth.
