The unique coating of our placemats makes them stain and wrinkle resistant. Caring for our placemats is easy. Should a spill happen, simply wipe clean with a damp sponge.
Heavier soiling can be machine washed on the gentle cycle using cold water with a mild detergent. Air dry (tumble dry is not recommended). If pressing is desired, use the iron's high steam setting and press on the reverse side, covered by a towel.
Note that shrinkage of about 3% is normal with the first laundering.
Rayon embroidery thread will provide the best texture match for the placemats' mercerized cotton border. Rayon will also resist shrinkage when laundered.
