How do I clean my lamp?
Remember to wash your hands before handling the lampshade. We recommend the use of an electronics compressed air duster to blow-off dust and lint from hard-to-reach areas. It works perfectly and it's a very easy way to clean your shade. You can also use a soft-bristled brush or vacuum with the brush attachment, a feather duster or dry brush to lightly dust off.
For marks and scuffs, we recommend the use of a dry clean sponge or Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. If you need more cleaning power a Laundry stain remover pen will work. Just gently applied to the affected zone, note that sometimes it may require multiple applications.
