It’s Summer and we tend to want to take it easy-relaxing on the beach, grilling our dinner instead of making elaborate meals, and getting together for picnics with easy to prepare foods. People love using vinyl tablecloths especially this time of year since they are so easy to maintain. The are also an abundance of colors and styles so that you can match the decor as you wish. Turquoise is a great summer color for a party on the beach or pool party and hot pink is lovely for a baby girl shower.
There are a couple of ways to maintain a vinyl tablecloth in order to keep them around longer. While its nice to know that it is easy to wipe up spills on vinyl, try to wipe up a spill promptly. This will prevent soaking up the tablecloth and going to the flannel backing on the other side. Fold up and put away the tablecloth when not in use to prevent the color fading in the hot sun or preventing the tablecloth from getting soaked from a strong rain. This will also prevent the tablecloth from getting mold on it from excess moisture.
Wiping down the vinyl tablecloth with mild soap and water and a rag will usually do the trick. Take care however when using tomato sauce for that tends to stain! Check out the link for stains that are tough to get out in a previous article: How to remove newspaper ink stain from a vinyl tablecloth
Have a healthy and wonderful relaxing Summer!
