Guide To Wipe Clean Vinyl Tablecloths

There are many great reasons for using vinyl or PVC tablecloths over cloth-based alternatives. Vinyl or PVC tablecloths are also know as oilcloths and wipe clean tablecloths. Oilcloths are ideal for environments where spillages are always likely to occur, such as kids’ play areas, cafes, schools etc and can be wiped clean within just a moment or two. Vinyl/PVC tablecloths are also manufactured from robust materials, which means they can last for a considerable period of time before they need to be replaced, even when they are used for entertaining kids, preparing food and serving customers on a daily basis. Read on to find out more about why it makes so much sense to invest in wipe clean tablecloths.

An affordable, high-performance solution

Oilcloths are typically much cheaper than lace and cloth solutions you might use to protect your table. If you have small children at home, chances are wipe clean tablecloths are worth their weight in gold. These tablecloths can be used over and over again for a host of activities and are an ideal match for indoor and outdoor environments. Whether you’re on a budget or not, the wipeable tablecloth can prove to be an invaluable part of your day-to-day life.

Tablecloths for outdoor use

Vinyl tablecloths are perfect for outdoor dining and play. When the weather improves, most people decide to spend much more time outdoors and this is when our range of tablecloths become an invaluable accessory to your outdoor enjoyment. Our tablecloths are resistant to sunlight, which means bright colour can be retained even when they are exposed to the sun’s rays. Accessories such as clips can be used to keep tablecloths in place, so they can remain on your table even during windier periods or when children tug at them. Whenever food or drink is spilt on a oilcloth, it can be wiped away within just a moment. The tablecloths although enjoyed outside during sunny periods, should not be left outside during wet conditions, and if the underside (cotton) gets wet, it needs to be dried as soon as possible.

Barbecue tablecloths

Another social occasion PVC tablecloths are ideal for is the great British barbecue. During barbecues, a great deal of movement takes place, with crowds of people battling each other to gain access to a host of summery treats, often after numerous alcoholic beverages. Wipe clean tablecloths are strong and durable to keep accidents to a minimum and can easily be wiped clean in moments even when they attract sizeable amounts of grease and other forms of mess. Most people choose to use their tablecloths outside during summer when they have barbecues and other social gatherings planned.

Vinyl Coated tablecloths and restaurants

Oilcloths are ideal for restaurateurs, especially those with a high turnover of diners. It’s not normally financially viable for many restaurants to invest in the finest tablecloths, which means an affordable low-maintenance solution is needed. Serving food and cleaning up after guests are constant processes in restaurants, and things can become very messy when families with young children are on the premises. With vinyl tablecloths in place, families and groups can be welcomed to tables just moments after they were vacated by the previous diners. These solutions can save catering businesses a great deal of money, helping them cut their laundry bills substantially. There are all sorts of designs and colours available, which means it’s not hard to find the right solution for your needs regardless of your branding and colour scheme. Many restaurant owners and managers choose to purchase tablecloths in multiple styles and designs to suit different times of day and specific occasions. If your table has a distinctive shape, custom sizes are available to meet your requirements.

How are the tablecloths produced?

Our tablecloths are around 135cm wide and can be cut to any length to the nearest centimetre to fit your specific table. The rolls of tablecloth we use are 20 metres long, which means they can be cut to create the ideal cover for your surface.

What is the difference between matt and gloss finish tablecloths?

There are important differences between the matt and gloss finishes that we offer. Gloss is a traditional finish which is found on the vast majority of tablecloths. A tad more hard-wearing than matt, it brings out and emphasises the colours in the fabrics. Gloss is a particularly suitable solution for children with families. With matt, you get a subtler look, with the end result more closely resulting cloth fabric. Matt is also softer to the touch and is a good match for those who don’t require the durability of gloss, including households without children.

Why choose an oilcloths?

A wide range of customers opt for our vinyl and PVC tablecloths for many reasons, including the way they do not fray or crack, don’t need to be hemmed and the way they last for many years before they need to be replaced. They don’t require intensive washing and can be wiped clean within just moments, making them a dependable, high-performance solution.

What should I keep away from my tablecloth?

The vinyl coating we add to our tablecloths provides an easy care finish. However, it is important to keep certain substances and products away from your tablecloth to prolong its life, including lipstick, shoe polish, nail varnish and ball-pen ink. It’s also wise to wipe curry and tomato sauce from your tablecloth as soon as you possibly can to prevent staining. Keep newspapers away from your tablecloths until they are dry and don’t place plates and dishes that have come straight from the oven onto your wipe clean tablecloth.

How can I clean my tablecloth?

You can clean your surface with warm water, adding a small amount of detergent. Creases can be removed by ironing the reverse, uncoated side of your tablecloth with a cool iron. Oilcloths are not designed to be dry cleaned. In any case, you only need to take a few precautions and apply a modest amount of maintenance to prolong the life of your tablecloth.
