Always check the product information for exact care instructions for each item. Our placemats are meant for indoor use only. 


We recommend removing food and other stains right away, as the surface of the placemats is porous and can absorb stains. Wipe your placemat clean with a damp cloth. A mild detergent can be used when necessary.

No soaking 

Our placemats should not be soaked or cleaned under running water. The placemats cannot withstand machine washing. If the product gets wet, water may seep in between the fabric and the coating, which may cause the colors to bleed.  

About acrylic coating 
We also have acrylic-coated placemats that can withstand machine washing. These too can be wiped clean with a damp cloth and using a mild detergent.
