Oilcloth can be used to make tablecloths, aprons, place mats, tote bags and cabinet and drawer linings. It's heavy duty and will not rip or fray. It is unsafe for children under 12 due to chemicals in the PVC vinyl in which oilcloth is made. Oilcloth is available in a variety of prints and solids. It's waterproof with a shiny and smooth surface. You cannot put oilcloth in the washer or dryer, making it wipe clean only. Check out the video for a closer look!
