Frequently Asked Questions
Ideal Tablecloth Drop:
Ideally a tablecloth should hang evenly, or as evenly as possible, on all four sides. A drop of 8-10" is recommended.
Caring For Your Tablecloth:
MATERIAL: 100% High Quality Soft Polyester. Wrinkle-resistant and stain-resistant material.
Most stains of food or drink can be removed if wiped off right away with a dry cloth or paper towel. If stain persists, spray stain remover before any contact with water. Leave for few minutes before washing. Machine washable in gentle cycle cold or warm water. Dry on gentle cycle low heat (or hang to dry). If ironing is necessary, iron from the back using low/medium heat.
Printed Cotton Fabric:
MATERIAL: 100% High Quality Cotton. To keep the colours nice and bright use one cup of white vinegar on the first wash.
If any stain, spray stain remover before any contact with water. Leave for a few minutes before washing. Machine washable on gentle cycle cold water (to avoid any shrinking). Dry on gentle cycle, cold air "Air Fluff" (or hang to dry). If ironing is necessary, steam iron on the reverse side using "cotton" setting. Iron starch also helps remove the wrinkles.
Acrylic Coated Fabric:
MATERIAL: This fabric is made of 100% high quality cotton with a soft wipe clean acrylic matte satin finish. Our acrylic coated cotton tablecloths have a nice soft drape all around, they are not stiff like the old traditional heavy oilcloths or vinyl.
* As any other fabric, the fabric and coating will get softer and softer as you start using your tablecloth.
* The acrylic finish makes the fabric water and stain resistant to food and drinks - even wine! Even tough this is a high quality coated material, it is still fabric (not plastic) so it is recommended to wipe off any spills as soon as possible. If bright colour spills (especially liquids) are left too long it might leave marks on the acrylic.
* This fabric is not totally UV proof but the acrylic coating will definitely slow down the fading process. This fabric can stay outside, but it is not recommended to leave outside (overnight) for an extended period of time, especially on rainy days since nothing is fade, mold or mildew proof.
* This fabric is 100% NON TOXIC (no bad chemicals are used): PVC, BPA, Lead and Phthalates FREE. They are totally safe for your health and the environment.
Easy to care for, no washing is really necessary:
*If any food or drink spills, spray some stain remover and wipe it off with a wet cloth and dry with a dry cloth.
*If necessary, the tablecloth can be washed in the machine "Hand Wash Setting" cold water only.
*Dryer is not recommended. Hang to dry only.
*If ironing is needed, steam iron on the reverse side using "Cotton Setting". Iron starch helps remove any folding marks or wrinkles.
With grease stains, apply mild detergent to the cloth (or sponge) before cleaning.
Jacquard Woven Teflon Fabric:
Double Woven 100% cotton with Teflon coating to protect from stains.
Stains can be removed if absorbed right away with paper towel. If stain persists, spray stain remover before any contact with water. Leave for few minutes before washing. Machine washable in gentle cycle cold water (to avoid any shrinking). Dry on gentle cycle, cold air "Air Fluff" (or hang to dry). After cloth is dry, the Teflon coating needs to be re-activated by applying heat. To do that, you can either steam iron on the reverse side using the cotton temperature or put in the dryer high temperature for about 3 minutes. Iron starch also helps remove the wrinkles.
Jacquard Woven Tapestry Fabric:
60% High Quality Cotton + 40% High Quality Soft Polyester. The polyester will prevent hard wrinkles and will make it easier to remove any stains. To protect the fabric from stains, it is recommended to spray it with "Fabric Protectant". It will create an invisible layer making it stain resistant. Since this is a special woven fabric (not printed) it is recommended to DRY CLEAN ONLY.
Stains should be sprayed with a stain remover as soon as possible. Iron "No Steam" on "Cotton Setting" - Wrinkle Releaser Spray helps to remove any wrinkles.
