Gary Table Covers: How to Clean and Disinfect

Comments Off on Gary Table Covers: How to Clean and Disinfect

Gary Manufacturing has been offering custom vinyl table covers and fabric tablecloths for over 30 years. Here is a guide on how to clean and disinfect your covers based on what material you have ordered.  These instructions will help extend the life of your cover ensuring your space always looks and feels inviting and clean.

Vinyl Table Covers

We use quality vinyl’s that withstand heavy use. Your table cover is likely made from one of the following materials; Supreme, Titan, and Concept.  They are vinyl topped materials with a flannel or knit backing.

To remove ordinary dirt and smudges, use mild soap and warm water (non-abrasive cleaners only; 409 is good. Dr. Bronner’s castile soap is recommended).  Dry with a soft, lint-free cloth or towel.

Many stains can be removed with the following steps:

  • Use non-abrasive household cleaners such as Formula 409 or Fantastik with water and a soft cloth.
  • Use a solvent-type cleaner such as rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) liberally applied with a soft cloth. Dry area with another cloth, rinse with clean water and dry.
  • Use a small amount of strong active solvent cleaners such as nail polish remover (acetone/water) applied with a soft cloth.  The stain should be removed with six rubs.  If stain persists after 6 rubs, the stain has probably set, and may not be capable of being removed.  Please be aware that this method may damage the finish on your table cover.  We do not recommend using such harsh manners of cleaning our covers.

Fabric Tablecloths

We offer 2 choice materials for tablecloths, Premier and Poplin. Both are 100% polyester and stain-resistant.

Premier – Our premier fabric is spun polyester with a “cotton-like look and feel”.

Poplin – Our poplin fabric is a lightweight poly with a sheen.

For laundering purposes:

  • Wash in cold water
  • Tumble dry low, remove promptly
  • Use a cool iron for wrinkles

Extra Heavy Duty Commercial Vinyl Tablecloths

Leave a Comment

Are you looking for extra heavy vinyl tablecloths? A commercial-grade of vinyl tablecloth? Then look no further! We manufacture them.

One option for extra heavy vinyl tablecloths is to order our Supreme vinyl table covers. All sorts of customers buy this type of vinyl tablecloth from us: restaurants, caterers, event planners, and anyone else looking for long-wearing, commercial-grade vinyl covers. Our Supreme vinyl wipes clean easily, has a pre-fixe protective finish, and looks and feels like leather.
Muskingum Lakes Chapter of the American Red Cross in Ohio recently ordered it for their training room tablecloths. Sonnie, who runs the program there, wrote us, “We just love our new tablecloths! What a nice, classy look we have in our meeting room now.
They’re really so nice to use for every occasion, such as Babysitting Training. Thanks for the wonderful job.” They ordered our Supreme covers in a fitted style.
Fitted means, they fit the top surface exactly, and then a 5” drop is sewn on along the sides for a very polished, ‘fitted’ look. They chose Burgundy to compliment their color scheme and branding, but there are many, many colors to choose from.
We also know of one local restaurant that has had the same covers on their tables for 12 years! 12 as in, 10 + 2! We will write about that project soon, but suffice it to say, this is one long-lasting, extra heavy duty, vinyl supreme tablecloth!
UPDATE – This material comes in lots of great colors, including chocolate!
