If you really want to stop scrubbing your table, invest in a few tablecloths. I personally love Bed Bath & Beyond’s Origin Microfiber Tablecloths. (No, I am not sponsoring them, I really like them!) Spills don’t soak, they just pearl. You can shake that bad boy out, and reuse until it needs a wash, flip on another table cloth and done. The washing machine will do the scrubbing for you. We can easily fit the smallest and cheapest one they offer onto our table so I now have 3 of them (one in medium blue, dark blue, and yellow). Simple and classy.
