I will shortly use a handmade cotton ivory lace tablecloth, cotton, that my mother bought on her honeymoon in Bermuda, over a white tablecloth, to host a birthday party for her. I had it cleaned a few years ago - professionally and expensively. Thank god my brothers and their wives forgot about it because we have a lot of young children in the family and something like that can't stand too many cleanings. Also because now my brothers and I hold the big dinners (vs Mom & Dad) and we're hooligans who don't use lace tablecloths.
I can do plenty of searching online, but my question is, do you happen to have a great solution to blot up stains on cotton. I've used Martha Stewart's stain guide but wonder if anyone has any magic tricks of their own, because Stains Will Happen.
A friend suggested using a sheet of that micro-thin plastic made to go over tablecloths, but aesthetically, that would give my mother a heart attack.
