Table linens are a must-have for any special event. Whether you’re hosting a wedding reception, graduation party or a milestone birthday party, linens can take the décor and atmosphere to the next level. Quality linens will last a long time as long as they are properly cared for.
Always Follow the Manufacturer’s Instructions
Your table linens will include specific instructions recommended by the manufacturer. This will usually include a note about how to clean and care for your fabric products. Make sure you read this information entirely and follow it as specified. This is the best way to avoid faded colors, unraveled seams and other common cloth napkin issues.
Choose Durable Linens That Are Low Maintenance.
If you plan to buy linens, make sure you choose a product that is low maintenance. Fabrics that are resistant to stains and wrinkling will be the easiest to care for.
Have a Stain-Removal Plan for your Linens
No matter how careful you or your guests are, it is going to happen. Eventually a stain will wind up on your beautiful table linens. The best way to deal with this problem is to have a plan in place before it happens so you can get the stain out quickly and effectively.
The plan will vary based on the type of material used to make your cloth napkins or tablecloths as well as what was spilled on them. If you’re removing red wine from satin, make sure you absorb as much as you can with a towel then soak in warm water. Oil and grease stains can be lifted using a sprinkling of baby powder. Stained polyester, on the other hand, could be cleaned with rubbing alcohol, dish soap and/or vinegar.
