Polyester: A simple fabric to care for, polyester is machine washable in cold water. If your polyester table coverings have stains, stain remover is also safe for this fabric. Polyester is also safe for dryers, on a low heat setting.

Satin: As satin is a more delicate fabric and treating stains can be more difficult. Take time to assess the stains,

Lace: The best way to clean lace is by hand washing and using a mid detergent in cold water. Avoid using force to scrub at the material as it can damage the delicate fabric. After washing your lace tablecloths don’t wring out the excess water, instead gently squeeze and press out the remaining water and air-dry only.

Linen: For delicate linens, it’s best to hand wash in warm water. Use gentle detergent or soap to keep the material intact. Do not use a chlorine based bleach to remove stains and be sure to clean quickly when stains are fresh.

These care tips will keep your favorite table linens party-ready for the years to come. And remember, for any difficult cleaning, large jobs, or delicate materials, bring your table linens in to us for a professional cleaning!

When you dress to go out this summer, focus on two things; looking cool and keeping cool! Try and dress in the following fabrics that can help control your temperature and keep you comfortable all summer long.

Cotton may not sound like the best choice to keep your body temperature regulated but this natural fabric allows for better air circulation which minimizes fungal breeding which is a prime culprit for rising body temperature.

Linen is the oldest fabric known and has a reputation for coolness and freshness in hot weather. It is versatile, strong and stays away from your skin allowing better airflow over your body. Also, linen is soft and feels cozy and comforting.

Chambray is imitation denim and, even though it looks just like denime, it is a lot lighter and more breathable.

Silk is pretty, fashionable and traditionally very expensive, but it is also a protein just like your skin and hair so it does not soak up water like other fabrics. Since silk is an adaptive material, it reacts to the changing weather, cooling you down when it is warm and allowing you to look chic and classy in the process.
