How to Clean a Lampshade in 5 Seconds

Lampshades do get dirty despite popular belief or negligence. The quickest and easiest way to clean a lampshade is to use a lint roller. The stickiness of the lint roller picks up dust, fibers, hairs and more so you don't have to remove the shade itself and try to wash it in the sink.

The Fastest Way to Clean the Walls

You’re probably thinking, “Angela, why are you mopping your walls?” Just wait for it, did you see what I just did there? I like to clean my walls to brighten them up every spring and I have found that using a mop to clean the walls is the fastest way to get them clean.
Simply dampen the microfiber cloth head in your favorite cleaning solution and start "mopping" the walls. I find that hot water and soap works well. This works best on semi-gloss, glossy, and satin finishes; it will still work on flat paint, but you'll get a better arm work out.
You want the mop head wet enough to do the job but not soaking otherwise you can damage your walls.
