Fabric lampshades can pose cleaning challenges depending on their shape & construction but there are tried & tested ways to clean most…
Drum shades can be cleaned using a lint roller or a microfiber cloth. The lining can be easily vacuumed & wiped with a cloth if necessary.
Fabric lampshades can be carefully vacuumed using the upholstery brush attachment or by covering the crevice tool with tights (to prevent threads being pulled loose). Alternatively a hairdryer on cool setting can be used. For fragile lampshades an artists brush can be used; starting at the top, working your way down the shade in long sweeping motions to remove any dust.
For silk shades a ‘Dry magic’ lampshade cleaning sponge can be used. These are reusable & easily found on-line.
