You Need This

by Cate on January 6, 2007

Really you do. On Christmas Eve, when I made the mad dash to Bed, Bath & Beyond to grab some napkins, I spied their line of microfiber tablecloths. I grabbed one, and a set of 8 napkins, and sped back home to finish up our Feast of the Seven Fish. Company was coming in an hour, there was no time to dawdle.

During dinner, I remembered one of the unique features of the tablecloth — liquid spills bead up and do not go through the tablecloth. Read that sentence again. It’s important. Liquid spills bead up and do not go through the tablecloth. And you know we had to test it, and sure enough, it works like magic. The liquid looks like an amoeba blob, and if you poke it with your finger, it splits into lots of little blobs.


Truly a miraculous invention for anyone, but more importantly for those that have kids, drink red wine or entertain. I bought another one last week, and they’re on sale, so it’s on my weekend errand list. You can check out the deets here. The price is reasonable and they have a variety of colors and sizes available in both tablecloths and napkins. Seriously, it is the coolest thing. But then again, it takes very little to amuse me.

Until tomorrow…

A year ago today… I heart Nigella.

I’ve never seen the tablecloths, but I know we love our microfiber furniture. I was able to take out pen marks with just a cloth and some distilled water! :)

Ivonne – my newest favorite thing!

Lydia – I agree; I think demonstrating how it works makes it way more believable.

Krhm – Oooh microfiber furniture? Didn’t know it existed. Will definitely keep an eye out for it for the next house.

Madeline – I know, right?!

You don’t need to convince me. I saw your picture of those water drops and knew I had to have one. Actually went to Bed Bath and Beyond with my 20% off coupon and go one. Thanks for the info.
