well, thgey'll always have creases where they're folded. I like that though, yhou can tell if something has been ironed if it has nice crisp creases.

I like the creases too - in fact I iron my pillowcases, fold them, then run the iron over the folded ones again so the creases stand out. God, I'm sad! But you could roll them, I suppose?

You roll them or fold them gentle with acid free tissue paper

Just put it on the table in question and iron it flat in situ grin

disclaimer - I know nothing of this ironing of table cloths.

I got rid of the last one when ds1 was weaning and would pull the table cloth off. Sheets - I never even knew they could be ironed till I discovered mumsnet wink

but even if you roll it surely you'll need to do at least one fold???

if you only roll it once then it'll be really really long won't it??

well, if you crumple into a teeny ball, then the folding lines won;t be noticable will they.

Fold them gently into three, lengthways, then hang them on trouser hangers - doesn't stop the creases completely, but helps.

I can only do this because I ruthlessly commandeer DSD's wardrobe space for tablecloths - Evil StepMotherhood has its own rewards.
