One of the first things you'll want to do when you first use your polyester prints or take it out of storage is to remove any wrinkles. As with most fabrics, table runners will wrinkle when folded or stored over a period of time. However, with the use of a household steamer you can easily remove these small creases and have your table runner ready for presentation in a few short minutes. Simply follow the manufacturer's directions that come with your handheld steamer of choice. Be sure to exercise caution when using these appliances they have the ability to burn and cause injury when not used properly. You can find steamers at most major household stores or online. Do not iron your table runner as this will result in damage.
Over time and throughout the course of multiple trade shows and events your table runner may become dirty. One of the easiest ways to clean small surface marks is to wipe them away with a damp cloth. However, this may not always result in the desired level of cleanliness. In these cases you may use a machine washer to clean the table runner. Be sure to run the wash on a delicate cycle as to not ruin the fabric. To dry, hang the table runner and let it air dry. Using a heated drying machine can cause damage to the table runner. Be sure to hang in a way that will not cause the table runner to wrinkle.
