How do I keep my table cloth from sliding around on my table?

We have a nice new table and so I bought a cloth table cloth that has a vinyl type backing on it. Super cool, because it looks and feels like a cloth cover. Great for the kids and I can wipe it off like vinyl. Problem is, it slides all around. Any nice ways to prevent this?

Re: How do I keep my table cloth from sliding around on my table?

You can get a table cloth that goes under the table cloth.

Sorry it's a little hard to explain

It's kinda like a pad that goes on under the table cloth to protect the table but with what it is made out of it helps keep the table cloth in place.

I did a search and didn't really come up with a picture.
But I think it may be the Felt backed table cloth, I haven't bought one but I don't think it would be that hard to find. Maybe Bed Bath and Beyond or something like that if not at one of the normal department stores

I always just wash the table and throw the cloth on while it is still wet then smooth it out with my hands. Seems to work for me!! HTH.

Try putting a piece of shelf liner under it

Check your favorite store (Wal Mart, Meijer, KMart, Bed, bath and beyond, ect) where they keep shelf paper. You'll find some that is kind of like a foamy material, just cut a peice as long as the table and lay the cloth over that.

Sometimes the stores have them specifically for tables, but they're harder to find.

yup,this. Get the shelf liner that has a "tacky" feel and looks a tad like cheesecloth.. hmmm..can't describe it.It is not the smooth liner though

You can also buy the same type stuff in teh rug section of teh store.It will be a large piece used to stop rugs from sliding. I bought that and cut to fit my table.
