Machine washable – using gentle detergent at 40oC. Maximum spin cycle speed advised 800 rpm. Hang dry; avoid tumble dry always but if ever, use light tumble on low heat. After wash may feel slightly stiff/firm to the touch but once it is use, it will return to its original softness. However, you can also iron tablecloth for immediate result. Does not require ironing if tablecloth is hung immediately after it was washed.
