How to Wash Tablecloths

A lot of people aren’t sure how to wash tablecloths to make them remain in mint condition for long. Washing becomes all the more difficult when you have a logo printed on your table throw. Here are some step-by-step instructions for how you can safely wash your table throw:

  • Shake out your custom table throw when you take it off the table.
  • Use warm water and mild detergent to wash your table throw on a gentle cycle.
  • You can use the gentle permanent-press cycle of your machine to rinse the table throw. This will also prevent any wrinkles during the wash.
  • Now tumble dry your table throw on a low heat setting. If your dryer has a cool-down cycle, you can use that too.
  • Take the table throw out of the dryer immediately after the drying cycle ends.
  • Fold the table throw as soon as it is completely dry.
How to Fold Table Throws

Once you have washed and dried your table throw, you need to fold it carefully. You should remember that folding sometimes creates creases on the fabric. This takes away from the professional appeal of your table throw. Here is how to fold table throws properly:

  • Bring the long back edge of the table cloth to the front edge and fold it. Next, do the same with other opposite ends.
  • Fold the table throw half length-wise and then half width-wise.
  • Fold in half again so that you have a square shape.
  • Smooth out any wrinkles as you fold. Make sure to fold it smoothly to prevent creases as much as possible.
How to Store Table Throws

Storing your custom table throws properly enables you to maximize their use for a long time. Make sure you have washed, dried, and folded your table throws properly before putting them away. Here are some tips for storing your table throws to prevent wrinkles, stains, and discoloration:

  • Wash, dry and fold your table throw as per the above instructions.
  • Hang your table throw on a padded hanger and then hang it in a cool and dry place.
  • Keep it away from access moisture, which can damage the fabric and cause discoloration. 
  • Cover the hanger with a cotton sheet instead of a plastic bag to keep it safe from environmental factors.

Careful washing, folding, and storing can prevent creases on the fabric of the table throw. Despite your best care, wrinkles can still come up sometimes. If washing and drying haven’t made your table throw wrinkle-free, mist the fabric lightly with a spraying bottle and iron the fabric on the lowest setting.

With these tips for table throws care, your custom table cloth should be ready for your next display.
