- Get rid of the stain while still fresh. You want your linen to remain free from stains.
- As soon as the cloth gets a stain, apply artificial sweetener on it. The powder will absorb oil and prevent a permanent stain.
- Pre-treat them by soaking in hot water for 8 hours. Other options are to soak throughout the night or bleach it.
- After 8 hours, run them in a short cycle using hot water. Avoid a long cycle because it will add extra wear and tear.
- Hang it out and enjoy the free, bleaching benefits of the sun.

The shape of your tables determines the shape and size of cloth to use.
Tables come in three main shapes:
- Round. Use a fitting round table cloth. Measure the diameter of the table to get the right fit.
- Square. Both square and folded rectangular linen work well for this shape.
- Rectangle. For this shape, use either two joint square cloths or a rectangular-shaped one.

The right tablecloth depends on your setting. Some things to consider include:
Quality. This is the one thing you should never compromise on. High-quality tablecloths come at a high price. But they are durable and will serve you for a long time. Cotton and polyester and durable materials.
Your budget will determine the price you want spend on you linen. But, if you would like help cutting on cost, buy in bulk from a commercial linen supplier.
Purpose. Is the tablecloth for everyday use or for a special party? The purpose of the tablecloth dictates the material. For everyday use, find a fabric that can withstand daily washings. Cotton or polyester are your best bets. Silk and satin are good for an elegant party. You are not limited with options such as choosing a plain fabric or one with colour.
Size. Determine the size of tablecloth you need. To calculate the size, take measurements of the length (L) and width (W) of your dinner table.
If the cloth is for formal or casual dining, factor in the drop. The drop is the length of cloth hanging below the table’s surface.
For casual dining have a drop of 15 to 20cm and 20 to 30cm for formal dining. Your linen supplier can help you with finding linen with the right measurements.
