REPOSTED"Cure for a Foggy Globe"

Sorry, I don't have the answers. I just need to know where to look for them. I have several working lamps and one that is comatose. I'll start another thread later on how to bring that one back to life.
Three of my lamps are foggy, One is an eBay score and (according to the auction pics) acquired the fog during the shipping process. Another was in storage for a few years and has been foggy ever since I fired it up. The third was working fine until two months ago when it was knocked (while hot) to the floor. All use a 40-watt standard base bulb and are 16.25" tall with cap. Sorry, I don't know what model line they come from. I do know that they are of various ages.
For the past six weeks, I've had them plugged into a timer and have been cycling them (4-hours on, 2-hours off) three times a day with one 6-hour cycle off - still foggy. I even let them spend one night in the freezer before returning them to the cycle timer - still foggy. These remedies were suggested on other websites dedicated to Lava Lamp enthusiasts. If anyone has other suggestions, please clue us all in.

We had copious comments and posts on this wonderful subject with tons of super duper help. Then Molten Meditation took that advice and made a great step-by-step solution to the "cloudy lava lamp" of "foggy lava lamp" problem here: http://www.moltenmeditation.com/lava.htm

Nice article about unclouding lamps, but does it work on the US made Lave World type lamps too? The article seems geared towards UK lamps.
