Placemats are an aesthetic and practical complement to any domestic table. Placemats beautify your table for parties and daily meals. Whether your placemat is made of vinyl, fabric, natural wood, or fiber, it protects your table surface from scratches and other everyday wear and tear.

Keeping your placemats in good condition is a matter of routine maintenance. You can make your placemats look like new by maintaining them immediately after use. Many placemats can be cleaned with a simple damp cloth, but if persistent stains or problems occur, there are several ways to restore the tablecloth material to its new quality. From using multi-purpose cleaners for vinyl and plastic placemats to soaking the tablecloths in liquid laundry detergent for 24 hours.

Buying new placemats for any occasion can be very expensive, and finding the perfect tablecloth for your table can sometimes be a big headache. But there are many fun and inexpensive solutions to these problems.
You can make tablecloths for your dining table in any color or theme you want. It’s quick and easy, and you can use different materials that are cheap and easy to find. Use your imagination and let your creative juices flow. You can even make it a family activity. Invite your kids to help make paper placemats by painting and coloring a picture on each one before it is sealed. These are also great gifts that most grandparents will want to receive, a true “work of art” that they will appreciate.

You can recycle old road maps in a fun and useful way by making placemats out of them. Keep fond memories of your family’s favorite vacation with maps of that special place. Or make gift tablecloths for a birthday party.

But the life of a placemat doesn’t have to end when it’s old and worn out. Placemats can be used for a variety of craft projects, from handbags to curtains.

Fabric tablecloths, with their many design possibilities, can be sewn and turned into wallets to match any outfit or holiday, for just a few cents. They can also be made into many useful pieces of furniture, including window treatments. Dark placemats are perfect when the purpose is to create shutters that block light. Choose placemats made of fabric that are soft and can be easily sewn together to form a large panel to match the size of the window.
