Life can be a little messy, we can admit it. If you've found that long-awaited, long searched for rare antique, or if you've had several and have used them for years—you know dirt happens. Dust settles no matter how hard you clean in small places. Sometimes, small enthusiastic grubby or sticky hands can get on a lamp shade or polished part leaving behind a little love and a lot of dirt. Lampshade fabrics tend to attract dirt as well if touched too often.
