I have one of these lampshades http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/50103265 and want to wash it in hot soapy water however I want to make sure the metal rings dont go rusty, how would you reccomend I dry it? Thanks for any help.

Yeah, I'd leave it to sit on a tea towel to let the excess drip off, then dry it on a low hair dryer setting.

Do you think I'll avoid water marks this way?

Put a couple of capfulls of white vinegar into luke warm water and use that to clean it (Be warned do not use hot water as the fumes can be a little difficult to be around)
That should stop water marks:thumbsup:

I have the same lampshade and i wash mine in the sink, then dry it with a clean cotton tea towel - never had water mark left on it and its not gone rusty, it sparkles like new after a wash
