Household Tip: How to Clean Lampshades in a Snap!

I'm on "staycation" this week, so I'm working on some projects around the house, cleaning out and organizing closets, etc. Since I'm in a major cleaning mode, I thought I'd share with you how I clean my lampshades...

You can purchase one of these little gems for a buck at the dollar store and they last for a long, long time! I can usually clean two or three lamp shades before I have to remove the top layer to reveal the next layer of sticky tape:


I hope this little tip has been helpful to you! Wishing you a blessed day!
