How are tablecloths measured? And how much should a tablecloth hang over?
What are standard tablecloth sizes?
How can you remove tough stains from tablecloths?
It's up to you how much you want your tablecloths to hang over the table edges (called the "drop"); a 30 to 40 cm (12 to 15-inch) drop would be lap-height for most guests (when sitting down) and is common in restaurants. Meanwhile, a 75 cm (30-inch) drop would usually reach the floor as that's the height of a standard table. You'll often see these longer drops at more formal events, like wedding receptions.
Tablecloths are measured by taking the total width and length (for square tablecloths), or the diameter (for round). So you'll need to account for your desired drop when determining whether a tablecloth will fit your tables.
Tablecloths come in all shapes, lengths, sizes, and diameters. However, some sizes are more common than others. Here are some of the most frequently seen:
|Table shape||Table size||Tablecloth: ordinary||Tablecloth: floor drop|
|Round or square||60 cm (24 in)||114 cm (45in)||230 cm (90 in)|
|Round or square||75 cm (30 in)||132 cm (52 in)||230 cm (90 in)|
|Round or square||90 cm (36 in)||132 cm (52 in)||275 cm (108 in)|
|Round or square||105 cm (42 in)||163 cm (64 in)||275 cm (108 in)|
|Round or square||122 cm (48 in)||178 cm (70 in)||275 cm (108 in)|
|Round or square||152 cm (60 in)||230 cm (90 in)||300 cm (118 in)|
|Round or square||203 cm (80 in)||275 cm (108 in)||30 cm (130 in)|
While our tablecloths are resilient and stain-resistant, spillages are inevitable in the hospitality industry. Marks like wine or curry stains can be particularly stubborn and tricky to remove.
For white tablecloths, we'd recommend a washing temperature of 60°C to get rid of stains. If the stain persists, you can try adding a stain remover. We would not recommend a bleaching agent as this will permanently damage the fibres.
Trying to remove stains from a coloured tablecloth? You can still set the washing temperature to 60°C to remove the marks. Again, you should steer clear from bleach, as this will damage coloured fabrics.
Still no joy? For both coloured and white tablecloths, you can increase the washing temperature again to a maximum of 90°C. Bear in mind, this may cause creasing - you'll need to wash the tablecloth again at a lower temperature to remove any creases.
