Paper tablecloths are disposable options for covering tables at parties and other events. They come in a variety of colors and patterns, and can be purchased at party supply of home stores. They are often sold folded, so wrinkles are quite probable when taking them out of the package. Even though they are an inexpensive option for table coverings, wrinkles can make them look less elegant than if they were straight and smooth. There are a few methods for getting wrinkles out of paper that can work for paper tablecloths and other paper products.
Things You'll Need
- Water bottle with mist setting
- Heavy objects (e.g., books or weights)
- Kitchen towels
Water and Heavy Objects
Place the tablecloth on a flat surface.
Fill up your water bottle. Mist a small area of the paper tablecloth with a light amount of water. Place a heavy flat object, such as a book, over the wet area.
Allow time to dry before lifting the book. Repeat the process on other wrinkled areas of the tablecloth.
Iron and Towels
Lay the tablecloth on a flat surface. Mist a small wrinkled section of it with water. Cover this area with a kitchen towel.
Heat the iron to low heat. Gently press the iron over the area covered with the kitchen towel.
Remove iron and towel. Check to see if the wrinkles are gone from the paper tablecloth. Repeat if necessary.
