A wipe clean oilcloth – the perfect solution for busy family lives!

Add a new lease of life to your home décor with a wipe clean oilcloth

When it comes to family life, we all know that keeping your home clean and tidy can be a constant battle! With our wipe clean oilcloths, there really is no need to worry about spills, and there’s absolutely no reason to stop your little ones having messy play fun either!

Our great selection of oilcloths are the ideal solution for toddlers and youngsters; and what’s even better is that they can be simply wiped clean in a few seconds!

How to look after your wipe clean oilcloth

Our oilcloths are both durable and long-wearing, allowing you to spend more important time with your family, and less time cleaning up messes and spills!

To keep your oilcloth in the best possible condition, we recommend wiping the surface with warm water, which can contain a small amount of detergent. Here are a few other top tips to help you make the most of your family-friendly oilcloth:

  • Some tomato-based sauces and curry sauces can also leave marks and stains and these types of stains should be wiped away immediately
  • Newspaper print can transfer onto the tablecloth if it is still damp from wiping
  • Hot cooking oil will damage the surface
  • It will definitely NOT withstand ball-pen ink, lipstick, nail varnish or shoe polish
  • Do not place plates or dishes straight from the oven directly onto the oilcloth’s surface as it will not be able to withstand the heat
  • To remove creases, the material may be ironed on the reverse (uncoated) side with a cool iron
  • Your oilcloth must not be dry cleaned

Our oilcloths come in a range of sizes to suit all requirements. We have large oilcloths in 20 metre rolls and we have small oilcloths of just one square metre. There are plenty of sizes in between this to suit different lengths of table surface and we also offer round oilcloths to fit both indoor and outdoor tables.

If you would need help choosing your new oilcloth, you can choose up to four free samples via our sample request form!

Modern Oilcloths Narvik

Introducing our new Narvik range of modern oilcloths

We’re really pleased to introduce our new range of modern matt oilcloths – Narvik!

Available in a choice of four fabulous colours – Denim, Duckegg, Grey and Ochre, you’re sure to find a shade to suit your home.

Modern oilcloths are a perfect way to protect a kitchen or dining table and add a splash of colour, personality and charm to your home. Unlike traditional oilcloths, our modern PVC covers look more like the original tablecloth fabric, without the ‘plastic’ appearance of previous generations. Not only does this mean that they look fabulous but the durable surface means that they can be wiped clean – even bleached to remove stubborn stains – without damaging the fabric.

Ideal for families with children, there’s no need to put your oilcloth in a washing machine to remove mess from mealtimes. Simply spray or wipe clean, and your kitchen table is tidy for next time!

Browse our full range of modern oilcloths or request your free samples today!
