Why use Table linens?

Whether casual, formal, trendy, or fun, table linens set the tone for your dining establishment, special event, or dinner party.

How do I care for my Just Wipe Clean™ tablecloths?

To help protect your investment and maintain your tablecloths at their very best, we recommend that your staff follow these daily care instructions:

After each seating:

 Wipe tablecloths clean with a damp cloth, using a mild detergent. Dry with a soft cloth.  Do not allow food or liquid spills to set and /or dry.  Make sure that any detergent, cleaner, or sanitizer used on the tablecloths do not contain bleach.  If a food spill does become caked, or a liquid spill has dried, spot clean it using plenty of water and mild liquid soap.

Storage:

  Before stacking or storing your tablecloths, ensure that they are clean and completely dry.  The underside of your tablecloth must remain completely dry after they're stacked or stored to prevent mildew. Dry thoroughly with a soft towel or paper toweling before stacking.

Washing:

 Wash your tablecloths at 30 degrees Celsius.  Use detergent sparingly and rinse thoroughly.  Fabric softener is not advised.  Tumble-drying on a low setting is permitted.  If necessary, the tablecloth can be ironed on the back side only using a low setting.  

Sanitizing:

 Between washings, use a quaternary ammonia sanitizer to disinfect your tablecloth. As with all cleaners used on your tablecloths, do not use a sanitizer containing bleach.

 Although Just Wipe Clean™ tablecloths are stain-resistant, they are not stain-proof, nor are they completely resistant to wear-and-tear over a long period of time. In addition to following the easy daily care instructions, please take note of the following precautions:

  • Wipe mustard spills up immediately. Mustard contains turmeric, which is used as a yellow dye and will stain many hard surfaces, fabrics, and vinyl. Tomato-based foods also can cause staining if not cleaned off quickly.
  • Centerpiece and decorative materials not normally used on table tops, such as terra cotta pots or metals that rusts, will stain any fabric including Just Wipe Clean™ fabrics.  If you must use these materials or any questionable item, place them on top of a on top of a protective surface such as hard plastic, china, or ceramic base plate.
  • Keep your tablecloths out of direct sunlight for extended periods of time to avoid premature fading.
