As an oilcloth will protect your surfaces from spills and mess, you can prep at the kitchen table rather than at your worktop – perfect for baking with young children! Plus, our oilcloths can be wiped clean in a matter of seconds so you can enjoy all the fun of a family baking session without spending ages cleaning up.

So, after a fun-filled baking session, simply wipe your oilcloth clean with a damp cloth and it will look as good as new.

Family-friendly oilcloths

Family-friendly oilcloths – perfect for busy family lives!

We all know that children are magical but they can also be very messy! As a parent, you can often be worried about how you are going to keep your home clean and tidy, and how to keep your carpets and surfaces free from dirt and stains.

With our wipe clean oilcloth fabrics, there’s no need to worry about spills and there’s absolutely no reason to stop your little ones having messy play fun either! Our fantastic range of water resistant oilcloth fabrics are the ideal solution for boisterous toddlers and exuberant youngsters, and what’s even better is that they can be wiped clean in a matter of seconds!

How to care for your oilcloth

When it comes to children, keeping everything clean and tidy can be a constant battle. Our oilcloth fabrics are both durable and long-wearing,  allowing you to spend more important time with your family, and less time cleaning!

In order 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:

  • It will definitely NOT withstand ball-pen ink, lipstick, nail varnish or shoe polish
  • 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 cloth if the cloth is still damp from wiping
  • Hot cooking oil will damage the surface
  • 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

With so many fantastic designs and gorgeous colours to choose from, our family-friendly oilcloths are sure to brighten up any kitchen, dining room, bedroom or playroom!
