I have off-white colored lamp shades that get very dusty and coated in cat hair. Without rubbing in the dust and discoloring the shades, how can I get them clean and dust-free?

Vacuum them with the attachment on your vacuum cleaner.

I use a clean small paint brush or basting brush to dust my pleated shades. Works like a charm!

TRY USING A BLOWDRYER ON MED. SETTING IF YOU DON'T HAVE A BRUSH ATTACHMENT TO YOUR VACUUM.

If the shades aren't pleated, this is a great trick -
I bought a 4 pk of Lint Rollers that have tear off sheets, at Sam's Club. I keep one upstairs and one downstairs. You can;t believe the amount of "stuff" they pick up off of the lamp shades!

Bounce-type fabric sheets work well for this.

try a Swiffer Duster, I use them on my pleated white lamp shades and they are fantastic !!
