SHOW & TELL

Last time I went shopping there was a lady selling table cloths. They were all very nice and I liked this one. I bought it for only 8 € !

It is a very practical table cloth. You can pour wine or juice or whatever you wish over it and it wouldn't make a single spot !



Here is a little demonstration with red wine. See the catastrophe ? It would be very difficult to get red wine stains out of a fabric. But not with this one



with a sponge I wiped it off.



and it looks clean again. It's just a wonderful invention. You think it is an ordinary fabric table cloths but it behaves like a plastic one.



I thought it would also be nice for the Christmas meal and bought two, one for our son and one for us ! Now we can push our drinks around without fear and also eat like pigs !

Neat tablecloth! It just have some kind of liquid repelling chemical in it. I have a clear plastic cover over my tablecloth.

I like these.... and how cool that you can spill stuff on them like that. Nifty.

Very clever find, Gattina, it's perfect for family gatherings.

I love tablecloths that do this - makes it so easy to clean up those little spills. The Christmas tablecloth looks beautiful.

I love tablecloths and have quite a few. I like to change them out all the time. What a neat one you found! I have a vinyl one that you can wipe but not a one that looks like cloth and you can wipe - very neat find!

I so want one of those....it's almost like the spill was attracted like a magnet with the sponge.

I've never seen anything like those! The colors are so vibrant and to be able to spill and not worry is a huge plus! That is just fantastic!

You are so lucky. We have given up on tablecloths except on holidays. Now if we had one's like yours it would be different.

DianeCA said...

Very clever. As much as we spill things around here that seems like a good investment.

Susie Homemaker said...

Awesome cloth...is it treated with something? I am a major spiller!

Warm Wishes,
