How do I care for a "coated" tablecloth?
When your tablecloth arrives it will have been folded. These creases will come out naturally over a few days if the cloth is spread over a flat surface in a warm room. If you want to speed up the process you can remove the creases by ironing the reverse side of the cloth with a warm iron. The best way to store your coated tablecloth is to roll it up.

 

Spills will wipe easily from your coated tablecloth – clean immediately with a sponge and clean warm water. While this coated fabric is hard wearing and durable – it is not indestructible! Do not use any abrasive cleaning fluids, cloths or detergents – it will not tolerate paint, nail polish, ink, solvents etc.

Be careful with hot dishes – we strongly recommend the use of trivets and placemats as excessive heat can damage the coating and spoil the look of the fabric.

While our coated fabrics are fade resistant, if they are left in very strong sunlight for extended periods some natural fading will occur.

To freshen up your coated tablecloth it can be occasionally machine washed at 30°C. Do not use fabric softener. Hang your tablecloth to dry in the shade with as few folds as possible. DO NOT TUMBLE DRY. When the cloth is completely dry, iron on a cool setting on the reverse side to reactivate the coating. DO NOT DRY CLEAN.
