Cleaning white lamp shade?


  • #2

    Try "cancelling" the dirt with a white rubber/eraser if the fabric is stiff. Otherwise, I would try with a paste made from water and bicarbonate of soda. Leave it on, and when it's completely dried brush it all off. I'm planning to do the same with one of my roller blinds. If it doesn't work, use titanium-based toothpaste (no water/foam), leave the lampshades in full sun. Titanium got rid of a rust stain on a friends' white linen dress that couldn't be washed (with water, I mean).
