No matter how much food your children drop on the tablecloth, cotton tablecloths are inexpensive and don’t hurt the purse and are easy maintenance. You can wash them in the washing machine or can be spot cleaned with a damp rag or sponge. Cotton tablecloths last very long as well. You can use the same one for informal dining room for years.
Another inexpensive option is to pick up polyester tablecloth or a cotton-polyester blend tablecloth. With its silky and shiny look, it works well in semi formal indoor dining or outdoor parties. It is available in many colors and patterns that allow you to mix and match. Also it does not shrink and is durable and machine washable.
Silk and organza are more expensive tablecloth options. They offer a more luxurious appearance and are best suited for weddings.
