We all love a good party but it is often inevitable that your linen table cloth might be a bit worse for the wear after a raucous dinner party. With lively conversation comes waving hands and the spilled glass of red wine or the tipped coffee cup. Don't let a bit of spills ruin your fun. We have some simple tips for dealing with common holiday table cloth stains from Libeco Home:

  • Fruit, coffee, tea and chocolate: Rub with alcohol, white vinegar and ammonia.
  • Candle wax: Scratch off dried wax, absorb residue with blotting paper and warm iron.
  • Greasy Stains: Rub with ammonia.
  • Red Wine: Rub immediately with sparkling water or white wine.

If stains do not disappear, you can try:

  • Soaking the linen in a good washing detergent, or dissolving 3.5 oz. sodium borate in boiling water, then adding enough cold water to yield 1½ gallons, and let soak for 1 hour.
  • Never use chlorine bleach which may damage the fibers.
