Compared to cotton, linen is a heavier and stronger material, making it a common choice for bedding, tablecloths, and napkins. Because of this, your linen items can go through a lot – from protecting your table at big family dinners to keeping you warm at night. Vanish can help you keep your linen stain-free so you can love it for longer.

Even though linen is a super absorbent material, we recommend a three-step process with either the Vanish Oxi Advance Multi Power Powder or Vanish Oxi Advance Multi Power Gel. The powerful Oxi Advance formula banishes stains, brightens colours and removes odours in just one wash. Plus, when you wash your clothes with Vanish, the deep hygiene action* gives your linens a deep clean. All you have to do is either pre-treat, soak or use in-wash to get the optimum results.

How to remove stains from tablecloths

Your tablecloth can work over-time to protect your table from breakfast, lunch and dinner. From the full English fry up to the classic Sunday roast, spills and splashes from food and drinks are a common issue that can threaten your linen tablecloth.
Pre-treating is going to give you the best chance of getting stains out of your tablecloths. If you’ve found yourself with stains like fruit juice or curry stains on your tablecloth, you can pre-treat with Vanish Oxi Advance Multi Power Powder or for food oil stains, Vanish Oxi Advance Multi Power Gel has got you covered:

 

Powder:

  1. Mix 10g of powder with equal amount of water, stir for 30 seconds.
  2. Apply the mix on the stain.
  3. Rub stain as needed 

Clean and dry the scoop before placing back into the tub.
After pre-treatment, wash as usual.

 

Gel:

  1. Pour 2ml of Vanish gel directly onto the stain and gently rub.
  2. Leave the product in contact with the stain for 10 mins max 

 

After pre-treatment, wash as usual or rinse thoroughly.

Are stains on your tablecloth sticking around? Give them a soak in either the powder or gel before washing. Simply add 1 scoop of powder, or 100ml of gel, into 4L of warm or cold water (max 40°), and then leave it to soak for 1 hour (max) for colours and 6 hours (max) for whites. After, just wash as usual with an extra dose of Vanish in the washing machine.
