Everyone will have guests in their home. Now imagine your tablecloth getting torn up only because your kid was trying to stand up holding it, maybe because it had become weak after 2-3 washes. The reason for tearing in not important here, what is important is how embarrassing the situation can be. So, if you don't want to face such a situation then you better have a durable tablecloth.
It’s tempting to think that when it comes to buying tablecloths, the only thing that matters is the size of the tables you need to cover. While it’s absolutely true that you can blindly purchase linens without any sort of knowledge regarding table linens, knowing just a few things about textiles will help you better understand your own needs as a consumer when buying a tablecloth–or, more likely, enough tablecloths for an entire party.
For every day use in an eat-in kitchen or informal dining room, cotton tablecloths are an excellent option. Cotton is easy to produce and process, which keeps the price low on most cotton options. Most cotton tablecloths are machine washable, though some tablecloths with multicolored patterns may show some color bleeding after washing. Cotton tablecloths can also be spot cleaned with a damp rag or sponge. In terms of durability, few fabrics compare to long-lasting cotton. Cotton tablecloths are available in a wide range of colors, patterns and sizes which also contribute to their popularity. Though cotton tablecloths can be used outdoors, they can mold or deteriorate after long periods of exposure to extreme weather or moisture.
Adorn the table for your party with a no-sew tablecloth using a large inexpensive drop cloth you can find at a hardware store in the paint section. With a bit of tracing you can easily convert the drab sheet of fabric into a cute scalloped tablecloth that can be dyed to match whatever color you need.
Tablecloths are the need of every house. But you will not find many who really care about the durability of the tablecloth before buying. If the tablecloth has a good design and a nice look, then it is bought without even thinking of its quality. I will tell you why getting a durable tablecloth is important.
Changing a tablecloth is such a simple thing to do, and it only takes 5 or 10 minutes. So it’s amazing how much of a difference it can make to a room. A new tablecloth can instantly change the entire look and feel of your kitchen or dining room. They’re also an easy way to decorate for the holidays. Just drape a tablecloth covered with Christmas trees or autumn leaves over your table, and you’ll find it nearly impossible not to get into the spirit of the season. Tablecloths have their practical purposes, too. They can protect a table from the perils of hot serving dishes and spilled drinks. They can also help to hide a table that might not be in the best condition. Yes, you can buy tablecloths. But buying a piece of fabric to make a tablecloth is a lot less expensive than buying a tablecloth ready-made. In fact, for the price of one ready-made tablecloth, you can probably make three or four.
