Unlike regular oil cloth, Marimekko oil cloth is actually coated cotton, moisture repellent poly-vinyl finish over cotton fabric. This makes the fabric more pliable to work with than traditional oil cloths. This kid friendly fabric is semi-porous so Marimekko recommends wiping up spills quickly with a damp cloth. RED FOOD WILL STAIN IF NOT CLEANED QUICKLY. If necessary use a mild non bleach detergent. You can wash it in a washing machine in warm water on the delicate cycle. Hang it up wet and pull it straight. Iron it on the cotton side while damp with a cool iron.
Great for benches, chairs and tablecloths when you want easy clean up with style. While intended for indoor use, it can be used outdoors as long as you do not allow it to stay wet for long periods of time as this may cause the fabric to mildew.
Since 2008 all oilcloth manufactured by Marimekko is phthalate and BPA free.
Marimekko recommends storing the fabric rolled which is how we ship it to orders within the U.S. Fabric shipped outside the US will ship folded.
