Absolutely nothing! Your cushions can
be left out in ALL weathers! If the temperature falls below -30 degrees, the
PVC coating may become brittle (but it doesn't get that cold here does it?)
and they do look pretty in the snow. You need to be aware that the more
extremes of temperature that any oilcloth is exposed to will cause the PVC
to deteriorate, resulting in the life of your product shortening.
Similarly Oily Rag® bunting and outdoor doorstops can withstand
the full extremes of the English weather.
Untreated oilcloth - YUCK!
5. What happens to the oilcloth if it snows?
If anything is spilt on top of your tablecloth, just wipe with a wet cloth
in the normal way. If you don't mould / bacteria may grow on the PVC
coating, probably due to some food residue. Simply wipe off. If the cotton
underside of the oilcloth does somehow become saturated, hang up to
dry. Thanks to our anti-fungal treatment, mould will struggle to grow on the
fabric underside, unlike ALL other oilcloths!
The eyelets in the corners of the tablecloth are made of nickel coated brass
so they won’t rust, and they enable you to weight the corners of your cloth
so that it won't blow away. Natural pebble tablecloth weights are
available to purchase on our site. They are suspended by a leather tie and
will not damage your cloth. The whole idea of having an Oily Rag® product is that it
can be left outside all summer, giving you more time to simply enjoy your
outside space style and in comfort.
Please never immerse your
cushion in water. It has been designed to allow rain water to run off it without
permeating. It isn't a lilo!
The best way to clean your cushions, tablecloths, doorstops or bunting is
just to wipe with a damp cloth. All oilcloth can absorb some oils (they
leech into the plastic!) so care must be taken if using the cushions on any oiled wooden
furniture, or if you are eating curry, please be careful not to spill any!
Your cushions may become 'sticky' over time or if they have been exposed to
extreme variants in temperature. This is generally due to the PVC coating
deteriorating. It is a normal wear and tear occurence. It can also be
caused by pollutants
in the air, or sap that becomes airborn from trees and leaves. If this
happens clean as soon as possible (as above) to help prevent further deterioration
of the PVC coating.
4. How to look after your Oily Rag® products.
3. The benefits of, and how to look after your outdoor tablecloth.
Oily Rag® cushions are truly unique; they have been
made so that rain water simply can not penetrate the fabric of your cushion, or
even enter through the seams, at last, a truly outdoor waterproof cushion.
But please do NOT submerge in water!
They brighten up a garden without flowers. They furnish your furniture, just
as you would your sofa. They allow you to enjoy your garden in comfort,
without the hassle of remembering to put the cushions away. Use to sit on
the floor, on a boat, a caravan, a picnic, a childs sports day - in fact
anywhere that you would like to sit that might be wet, your bottom will be
protected from the damp.
2. Why buy an Oily Rag® cushion?
All Oily Rag® products are made in the U.K. Our
special design of waterproof cushion and treated oilcloth is patent pending.
The cushions can be left outside even in the rain.
The fabric is designed and printed in Britain, and our main aim is to help
support British industry producing high quality
British products to be proud of. All Oily Rag® fabrics have been treated to help
reduce mould or mildew growing on the underside of the oilcoth. Any Oily Rag® fabric can be left outside
throughout the British summer to get wet, wet, wet - without any worries.
This innovative treatment and use of oilcloth is currently patent pending,
so (as far as we know) no other company is producing oilcloth in this way!
