    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:

    No worries hope it comes up nice and *clean* and *bright*

    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
