I like nice place mats for my table and, in the past, when they would get soiled or something I would toss and buy new. My wiser mind whispered, 'that's dumb'.
So... I went on a mission to find place mats that looked nice, of good quality, and that could be easily cleaned.
THIS IS WHAT I FOUND:
U'Artlines Placemats, Stain Resistant, Washable, PVC Table Mats, Heat-Resistant.
What's great about them?
1) You can throw them in the dishwasher, in the sink, or wipe down with a towel, and they come back like new;
2) They are well made and last - I have a set that I slip under one of the chairs at my patio table that I keep there all year around. And I may have to wipe the top one off depending on how long they've been there but it comes back like new;
3) They come in a variety of tasteful colors;
4) You get 8 place mats for less than $20.00
