FYI: COTTON LAMINATE COATING is Phthalate Free
So what’s the big deal about those impossible to pronounce phthalates (I just ignore the “ph” at the beginning) anyway? Just a tiny bit of info for you so you can look it up!

Phthalates are a group of endocrine-disrupting chemicals commonly used to render plastic soft and flexible. The EPA is concerned about phthalates because of their toxicity and the evidence of pervasive human and environmental exposure to these chemicals. The level of phthalates in childrens items is regulated by the CPSIA.

The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008 employs new regulations and testing requirements for children’s products.

Laminated cotton fabrics are CPSIA compliant and are free of harmful levels of PVC, BPA, and phthalates. Great for use in children’s garments, lunch bags, and food surfaces. Some manufacturers say that the laminated cottons are machine washable in cold water and that they can tumble dry on low, others say to wipe down only. Large pieces such as splat mats would be better served being sprayed and wiped so that they wouldn't be twisted in the washer and dryer.

Traditional oilcloth is a PVC product that contains higher phthalate levels, is often lead free but is not CPSIA compliant and should not be used in children’s items.

For more information here is a friendly article:
http://oilclothaddict.blogspot.com/2011/06/q-oilcloth-vs-laminated-cotton-vs.html

Our snaps, clips and hardwood rings have also passed CPSIA testing and are lead free.

CARE AND WASHING TIPS For Laminate Products:

If you submerge/wash a bib as opposed to wiping it down water can get into the fabric through the seams. The laminated coating on the fabric itself is waterproof but the small needle holes or edges of seams can let the water in to the coated cotton.

One manufacturer has said that the laminated fabric is wipeable with soapy water and another has said it is washable on cool and gentle.

From practical experience, not just my own but from many other buyers and crafters- this is what I have found:

For the most part wipe bibs off with a wipe or soapy water and then wipe dry. When I occasionally need to thoroughly wash them, I machine wash on cold with a non-bleaching, gentle detergent. I then air dry in the sun or machine dry on gentle low temp setting. This does a more thorough cleaning and has not harmed the fabric.

My bibs have not shrunk, they have a very slight texture that i don't try to iron out as they still look very pretty. The dryer has not harmed the fabric at all but I make sure it is on a low setting. The fabric "may" wear down more quickly when treated this way, but so far after many washings they are holding up fine. Some Moms have machine washed and dryed their Pocket Bibs for years, they still look and work great.

I don't machine wash my Tablecloths or Splat Mat because I don't want to have them twist and crease in the machine- I just wipe them down well with soapy water. Since they are topstitched I don't usually have any problems with stuck food or staining or the edge soaking in liquids. I do store them rolled and folded as little as possible to avoid creases.
