Why "Linen-Like" Table Skirting May Not Be What You Expect

Posted by JC on 10/15/2012 to Helpful Tips
Linen-like table skirting. The key word there is "like". Sold on the internet anywhere from $8.00 to $20.00, it's no surprise that so many reviews on these types of products are - to put it nicely - less than favorable.

So, what are the two most common reasons for unhappiness with linen-like table skirts?

1) I didn't know it wouldn't last for multiple uses. Adhesive backing (a strip that peels away to expose a sort of glue) means that, while it's easy to attach to the edge of your table, it's also a one-time use table skirt. After it's been used the first time the glue isn't strong enough for the skirt to be used again down the road. Throw it away and start over with a new one - you can see how this can get rather expensive over time.

2) It's kind of a fabric, but not really. Some reviews compare these types of table skirts to a paper towel. Others have equated the "linen" to the fabric that backs the box spring of a bed. However it's described, the consensus seems to be that if you're expecting the look, feel, and durability of a true linen fabric, you'll find that these are far from it.
