Another option is to dip a cotton swab into alcohol and brush it lightly over the bead right before you're ready to bake the beads. This will get rid of any unwanted inclusions (dust specks or dirt) and at the same time smooth out any fingerprints. When working on a larger focal bead, take the time to do this prior to baking because it really helps to lessen the work needed to finish the bead after baking.
