Table Linens: Caring And Cleaning

Formal, starched napery has gone the way of formal dining, but many people still like to use a tablecloth, especially when there are guests, ot it is a special occasion, such as Christmas. For normal family meals, if you adhere to this quaint tradition, many people use plastic cloths, especially on the kitchen table.

Tablecloths. When calculating which size of tablecloth to buy, allow on overhang of up to 30 cm all round. Buy larger than you need, rather than smaller, to allow for shrinkage. Laundering table linen can make a lot more work, so be kind to yourself. For everyday use, look for easy-care cloths; the best choices are non-iron linen or cotton/synthetic blends.
