Question not a tip, but a household question

Hello everyone on this extremely hot, hot day.

The a/c in my front room is on the wall. It is about 3 feet long, by 1 foot wide, and is installed about 8 inches from the celing. It works extremely well for us.

My problem is because it has been running almost continually for this week, it started to leak (condensation) out of the bottom, and has stained my lampshade. The shade is beige coloured fabric.
Does anyone know how to clean lampshades. The stain is kind of water marked looking, a bit dark.

Thanks for any help, I really don't want to replace the lampshade, as it was kind of expensive in the first place.

You might try using a soft toothbrush and cleaning it with some Simple Green or Oxy Clean.
