CV Linens Design Blog

You may know you love the look of a certain fabric and had no problem deciding what to order – but oh no! – it’s the day before your event and your coffee spills on one of your tablecloths. Don’t stress, below we’ve outlined all of the materials we offer and how to properly clean and maintain them!

Here are a few tips to avoid initial linen damage:

• Keep your products in their bags/casing until your event date draws closer and you need to remove them for ironing or prep.
• Always store your products in a safe, dry, dark place as exposure to sunlight and water over time will damage them.
• When in doubt, always contact our customer service department before cleaning linens in any way not listed on this page.
• Avoid Fabric Softners with our Machine Washable and Dryable items, they can leave your linens with oily spots or looking limp after laundering.
