Are tablecloths sticky?

washable tablecloth?

Written by Sabsika on February 4th, 2010, 4:37 pm

I ruined my dining table and don't feel like my table runners anymore, because they always mess up immediately, with a sucking man and a sweetheart who is already trying really hard to eat alone;)
Have you ever had oilcloth tablecloths?
Or do they just not look nice?
Our dining room is walnut and white ...
Thank you!

I have not yet found a plastic tablecloth that you can't stick to with your arms ..... I haven't had any tablecloths since I had children. Our table has already suffered badly in some places - who would have thought that Sprite (flowed under the plastic place mat and soaked overnight) would attack the paint?
I haven't seen a BEAUTIFUL oilcloth blanket either, they always look so conservative (vine tendrils, apples, vegetables, windmills ... * GG *)

I don't have a tip either and I'm curious to see what answers come.

I've had the washable tablecloths from "Erwin Müller" for years. Is coated cotton. They feel really good (no comparison to the classic wax tablecloths from the past), but are now also available in great colors. Liquid is not absorbed because of the Teflon coating, so far all stains have come out. So I'm totally satisfied with it and now have them in all colors. Costs a little more, but really worth it in my opinion ...

Only a light yellow one failed with red grape juice stains, but it was from the hardware store ...

I hope I could help you...

LG, Lilly

I bought washable tablecloths in Kaufland (for a party), they look relatively neutral (white with a little apricot / marbled), I think it's okay and absolutely presentable. the material is similar to fabric, not sticky or something.

I use wipeable tablecloths for the dining table. There are also some that fall like fabric. Just find it practical, wet rag and cover it and everything looks clean again ...

There are clear cover sheets, which are quite thick and sturdy. You get them by the meter in shops that also sell tablecloths. I bought mine in a carpet shop.

They are not particularly fancy, but they are more beautiful than oilcloth and also practical.

We always have a transparent tablecloth to wipe over it. The table is of course more beautiful on its own, but since it is untreated, I don't feel like staining red wine glasses or traces of tomato sauce.

We have had a new dining table made of natural wood for about 10 months. So that it lasts for a long time, we also bought a transparent table sheet in the furniture store (to be bought by the meter). There is a table runner in the middle and we usually still use placemats, so it always looks good.
And the beautiful table is not hidden under a blanket.

I find plastic blankets TERRIBLE ...

... sorry, but I can't do anything with that. And a table runner over the plastic cover - scary !!!!!

I like to put on a noble tablecloth on festive occasions, but never plastic or washable made of oilcloth.

We use fabric placemats when eating, they are great to wash and look good. When our children started to eat, I also put plastic sets for them to eat and that's it.

And I would teach your husband the right food without spilling ...

Otherwise you could also treat your table, there are special oils that impregnate and maintain.

My mom bought two huge ones. For her basement, she has a huge dining room for guests, two large tables.

The tablecloths are great, she says, they look really good and are washable.

Plastic tablecloths always remind me of those 60s films, the old German seating area, frilly curtains ...

No, seriously, I haven't seen a nice variant of it yet, something like that completely ruins the otherwise chic or beautiful room impression.
