An oilcloth is a practical and durable alternative to a fabric tablecloth. It is robust, washable and easy to clean. But how do you properly clean an oilcloth to extend its life? In this article you will find out what tips and tricks there are to keep your oilcloth clean and well maintained.
Regular Wiping To keep the oilcloth clean, you should wipe it regularly. It is best to use a damp cloth or sponge and a mild cleaning agent. Avoid harsh cleaners or abrasive sponges as these can damage the surface of the oilcloth.
Removing stains If your oilcloth still has stains, you can treat them with a special stain remover. However, test the stain remover on an inconspicuous area of the oilcloth first to make sure it doesn't cause any damage. Then apply the stain remover to the stain and let it work for a few minutes. Then rinse the oilcloth thoroughly with clean water and let it dry thoroughly.
Avoid Heat Avoid placing hot pots or pans directly on the oilcloth as this may cause damage. Instead, always use trivets or pot holders to protect the oilcloth.
Storage If you are not using the oilcloth, you should always let it dry thoroughly and then store it wrinkle-free. It is best to store it in a dry place and avoid direct sunlight.
With these tips and tricks you can keep your oilcloth clean and well-maintained for a long time. Clean it regularly and make sure to protect it from heat and direct sunlight. This means you will enjoy your oilcloth for a long time.
