A simple way to maintain your paper or fabric shades is by regularly dusting them. Use a feather duster or dry cloth to gently remove loose dust and dirt from the surface of the shades. Start from the top and work your way down.

Another option is to lightly vacuum your shades by setting your vacuum cleaner to the lowest setting and using a soft brush attachment to pick up any dirt. Again, start at the top and work your way down, making sure to cover both sides. This method is particularly effective for fabric shades.
