I have a picnic table that sits on my camper deck. There's no words for the top of the table other than ugly and drab. The tablecloth in the Candy Stripes design is just what I needed to add a splash of color and to hide the ugliness underneath. I haven't had this tablecloth long, so I haven't had the chance to see how it does with wear and tear. I'm also curious to see how well it does in the weather conditions. As for what I've noticed so far, I am impressed with the look of this tablecloth on my picnic table. It fits just right and makes it look so much better.
The tablecloth is made of acrylic-coated cotton, making it easy to clean up spills. My son managed to drop ketchup on it within the first half hour of putting it on the table. I was a little worried because I thought for sure there would be a smudge left after he picked up the mess. He took his fingers and swiped at the ketchup. There was not one shred of evidence that ketchup had ever been dropped there. Wipe-up really was easy.
There is no flimsiness to be found with this tablecloth. It is heavier than most I've seen, yet it is not so stiff that it's unmanageable to move.
I do not personally have any babies nor have ever claimed to, but I was given the opportunity to also review the Messy Baby Bib in the Jungle design. Since it sure wasn't going to fit any of my kids, I let a dear friend try it on her baby. As for my opinion of the bib, just by the design and look of the bib, it seemed like a great way to keep food and liquids off clothing. I know back in the day when my kids were babies that they were messy and it seemed like I was always trying to get stains out of their clothes. This bib seems like a nice way to keep babies covered and food off of clothes. The design is also very cute and is patterned all over.
My friend's opinion of the bib is that it was easy to put on her child and easy to clean. Messes were able to be cleaned off the bib by wiping it down and washing it. A pocket attached to the bib caught any crumbs and kept them from falling on the floor or baby's lap.
