Spandex tablecloths are a dream for event planners, party rental companies and banquet halls looking for a wrinkle-resistant, contemporary sleek silhouette. But with plenty of use comes plenty of spills and companies in the event industry need to keep a clean inventory to impress their potential customers. If some companies are looking to invest in spandex tablecloths, here’s what to expect for the washing and maintenance of the material – so you can keep your investment looking sharp!
The good news is – spandex is machine washable. To wash:
1. Examine the spandex for any evidence of visible stains or strong odors.
2. If strong odors are present, you can pre-soak in a cold water solution of 1 part white vinegar to 1 part cold water. (For major stink, up the vinegar to 2 parts white vinegar, 1 part water) Un-diluted Vinegar is also a good stain remover for sauces and red wine. For coffee or tea stains, pre-treat with liquid laundry detergent for half an hour.
3. Machine wash in lukewarm water
4. Tumble dry on the lowest heat setting to maintain the high level of elasticity.
No ironing should be needed – but if wrinkles do occur, iron on the lowest heat setting.
