INFORMATION & CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR TABLE LINEN
LOOKING AFTER YOUR TABLECLOTH
Spread your tablecloth on a table in a warm room to remove the folds. To speed up the process, iron it on the reverse with a medium-hot iron. Ideally keep it on a roll when not in use.
Wipe away any spills immediately with a warm, damp, soft cloth or sponge. Clean your tablecloth using Covetable’s Spray & Go, our all natural, food-safe, non-toxic cleaning product. Never use abrasive cleaning fluids, abrasive cloths or detergents. This fabric is hard wearing and durable, but it is not indestructible and scrubbing will remove the coating. Take care not to spill products that can stain or stick – e.g. wax, pens, felt tips, biros, lipstick, nail varnish, shoe polish, glue etc. They will not wipe off. Newspaper print can transfer onto the cloth if the cloth is still damp from wiping. Some tomato based sauces and curries can stain if not wiped away immediately.
It is not necessary to wash your cloth if it is regularly cleaned with Spray & Go. However, it is possible to wash the tablecloths at 30º C, but this can affect the coating and we advise against it. If you do wash it, do not use fabric conditioner and do not tumble dry. It should be hung up to dry out of direct sunlight with as few folds as possible. When the cloth is completely dry, iron on a medium-hot setting on the reverse to reactivate the protective coating. Do not dry clean.
Be careful with hot things! Excessive heat can damage the coating and spoil the look of the fabric. Always protect from hot plates and dishes by using trivets or placemats.
Although we try to ensure that our fabrics don’t fade, if they are left in very strong sunlight for extended periods of time some fading may occur. If you have any specific questions regarding the care of your cloth don’t hesitate to contact us. If you love and care for your tablecloth it will give you years of loyal service in return!
LOOKING AFTER YOUR NAPKINS
Our napkins are 100% linen. They can be machine washed at 30º C and ironed on a hot setting.
While they look great ironed and folded for a more formal occasion, if you fold them and neatly hang them up to dry you can easily get away with a more casual look.
Alternatively, wash and tumble dry on a low heat setting for a relaxed linen look.
LOOKING AFTER YOUR PLACEMATS
Our placemats are made of fine, dyed raffia and handmade. For this reason they are not always uniform in texture, colour or size. If liquid is spilled on a mat it should be wiped away immediately as there is a risk that if left to soak, it may cause the dye to run. Dyes, like ink are difficult to remove from absorbent surfaces.
Please note that if a wet placemat is left on our coated tablecloths the dye can run and permanently stain the fabric.

Please note – minor shade variations can occur between dye matches of fabric during manufacturing which means there could be shade variations between a sample cutting and the current production fabric. Linen (flax) is a natural fibre and not always uniform in texture and colour. Within the yarn it is likely you will get “slubs” or small knots that occur randomly along its length. The coating can take differently making slight colour variations within batches.
