might have some in store promotions that we can offer you.

4. Do I have to buy napkins separately?
No. Napkins are included in the price of the tablecloths. Depending on the size you buy, you either
receive 8 or 12 napkins. Of course, the special sizes have more napkins.

Exceptions: Crochet cloths and damask cloths do not come with napkins.  

5. Do the tablecloths measure exactly to their dimensions?
No. The tablecloths will not measure exactly to their dimensions. This is because they are already
washed and pre-shrunk prior to us receiving them. This is to ensure that they will not lose any length
once you wash them.

6.What sorts of materials are tablecloths made of?
There are three main types of material that are used to produce tablecloths. They are cotton, polyester
and linen. There is also a tablecloth made of a cotton and polyester blend.

7. How do I take care of the tablecloths I buy from Mr. Tablecloth? Do I have to hand wash
them?
All of the tablecloths we sell can be machine washed. It is how you wash them that determines how
they come out.

Since tablecloths are made of different materials, the type of material determines how one should care
for them:

Cotton: Should be washed in cool water, gentle cycle. 5 minutes in the dryer, just to get the dampness
out! If left in the dryer too long, cotton will shrink! Then hand or lay flat to dry.
Polyester: Should be washed in cool water, gentle cycle. It is perfectly safe to put your polyester coth
in the dryer. It will not shrink.
Poly/Cotton Blend: Should be washed in cool water, gently cycle. It is also safe to put this tablecloth
in the dryer to dry completely. It will not shrink. These tablecloths usually need a light "dusting" with
the iron. This means that they do not require the same amount of ironing that the cotton and linen
cloths will take, but rather a quick touch up.
Linen: Should be washed in cool water, gentle cycle. Linen should never be put in the dryer for more
than 5 minutes, just to get the dampness out. Linen will shrink if left in the dryer too long! Then lay
flat or hang to dry. Once again, similar to the cotton cloth, it is best to iron linen damp, and on the
reverse side. This will keep the embroidery looking richer longer.

8.Can I use bleach when I wash the tablecloths I buy from Mr. Tablecloth?
Yes! Fill the washing machine to a full load. Add your detergent and one cup of bleach to the water.
Then let the machine gyrate for a moment. This ensures that the bleach gets swished around evenly.
Then put in your tablecloth and wash normally on the gentle cycle. (Use a ½ cup of bleach for a ½ of
a load of laundry.) NEVER put bleach directly on any material, as it will instantly change the color,
and may even eat through the material.

You can use bleach on color with moderation. Just be careful.

9. What are some common remedies to get stains out?
A tablecloth needs to be treated like a piece of clothing. Using it, and then letting it sit in your hamper
for weeks on end, will not make it easy to get the stains out. That said, here are a few tricks:

Grease: After the meal, apply a little shampoo (not the 2 in 1 with conditioner) or even dish detergent
like Dawn or Palmolive, to the affected area. Shampoo and dish detergent are used to cut grease from
your hair and dishes, respectively, so they work wonders in helping to prevent the grease from setting
in. Then wash the cloth as you would normally.
Ink: Hairspray is the best remedy. Just spray a little dab on the affected area and wash the tablecloth
normally.
Red Wine: This is probably the most frequently asked question about stains. There are a few different
remedies:
Take a tablespoon or two of reqular table salt and apply it to the red wine spot as soon as you notice
the spill. The salt will help prevent the stain from setting in. Then shake the salt off the tablecloth after
the meal. Then immerse the cloth in cold water. If talbe salt is not available, you can just pour a little
white wine on the red wine stain. The white wine will dilute the red wine stain from setting in. Then
wash as you normally would.
You can also use any sort of bubbly water, like club soda or Perrier. The bubbly water helps the red
wine stain from setting in.
Candle Wax: There are two common solutions that we have heard for getting wax off a tablecloth.
The first is to take a brown paper bag and apply over the wax stain, then iron. The wax should peel
off the cloth, right onto the bag. The other common remedy is to put the tablecloth in the freezer for a
few minutes. The wax will then harden and freeze, and it is easy to pick off the wax ant that point.
