Benefits of PVC

Tablecloths are nowadays available in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, as well as materials. Over the years, the choices of material have been updated and refined. Thanks to new technologies, the modern generation PVC tablecloth can withstand spills of all kinds. Simply wipe them with a cloth dipped in a mild solution of soap to remove all food and drink stains. Traditionally, manufacturers used natural materials like cotton to manufacture tablecloths. However, nowadays one has a massive host of options to choose from such as vinyl and PVC. Both PVC and vinyl, apart from being easy to clean in case of a spillage, are extremely hard wearing as well. Their waterproof nature makes them the perfect choice for any type of occasion, in which you need a durable and easy to clean protector. Another added advantage of tablecloths manufactured from PVC is that they are much less likely to tear or rip.

However, you should be careful and ensure that you do not put any sharp edged object on the PVC tablecloth as moving them over the surface of the tablecloth will rip the latter, making it unable for use in the future. As they are available in a wide range of colours and patterns, you can purchase several of them, and use the one you feel is suitable for an occasion. If you have a favourite cotton tablecloth, and would like to use that, simply cover it with a transparent PVC tablecloth. The waterproof layer of PVC protects grease and fluids from seeping into the cotton fabric. Always check the thickness (measured in microns) of the polyvinyl chloride. Opt for a thicker one for regular use.
