Easy Trick for Dusting Lamp Shades

1 Minute
Let's be honest. Cleaning isn't very fun. But every once in awhile, I find a simple trick that works so well, I actually find myself a little excited. This is one of them.
This is the lamp shade in my daughter's bedroom. Oh my! The dust that had accumulated was embarrassingly disgusting. Yikes! I tried vacuuming the dust off. I tried wetting down a rag to wipe it off. Nothing worked... until I discovered this little tip. I'm not even sure where I'd heard/seen it... maybe I'm the only one that didn't know about it...
One little tool got this lamp shade looking NEW. For the full tutorial, click HERE.

    I go to the local $1 store and snatch up a bunch of the lint brushes, use them for lamp shades, valances, couches, chairs, decorative pillows, and on myself after combing my pet and before cooking to remove any loose hairs, etc. Soooooo easy and quick.
