We were mesmerized by the neatness and the lovely surrounding in the restaurant. Their tablecloths were all whitish in color and imagine how difficult it would be if the red and spicy curry were to spill on these beautiful tablecloths. Perhaps special liquid repellent tablecloth is being used on each table. That would make cleaning up very much easier and certainly save cost too! From what I read, these liquid repellent tablecloth makes cleaning up very quick and easy and not only that, they do not leave marks or stains on the fabrics!
