Ask the Laundress
I was given a bunch of 50s tablecloths of my mom's that have stains on them, mostly coffee stains. I do not want to ruin them, and was wondering if there was way to bring them back to better state. They are otherwise not terribly worn.
For these stains, we’d recommend using our Stain Solution. The Stain Solution is formulated specifically for coffee and other tannin stains, like red wine or blood. It is gentle to use on any fabric and won’t harm the vintage tablecloths.
Most of these tablecloths are cotton, linen or polyester. In this case, you can presoak with our All-Purpose Bleach Alternative. It is color safe and will work to get rid of any dinginess. Follow by laundering with our Signature Detergent.
