FAQs:

Q: What is the difference between laminated cotton and oilcloth?

A: Actually, as far as I know, real true oilcloth is no longer sold anywhere! It was a heavy canvas fabric saturated with linseed oil to make it waterproof.
“Today's oilcloth is a vinyl that is bonded and supported with a coven cotton mesh. The surface can be wiped clean. . .
“The recent Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) prohibits oilcloth garments such as bibs and aprons or toys for children under age 12. This is due to the level of phthalates (a softener present in all vinyl) in the PVC vinyl of which oilcloth is made.” (Quoted from http://www.mendels.com/fabrics10.shtml)
Laminated cotton is a 100% cotton fabric that has a thin layer of polyurethane film adhered to the right side of the fabric. It is soft, just slightly shiny, waterproof, and lovely. 

There’s also great info about caring for laminated cottons at the Pink Chalk Studio blog: http://www.pinkchalkstudio.com/blog/2009/11/18/laminated-cotton-sewing-tips/

Q: How can I get rid of the creases?

A: Lay the cloth laminated side down on your ironing board. Cover the back side with a pressing cloth (I just use a piece of 100% cotton muslin) and press with a hot iron (I use the cotton setting). Don’t keep the iron in one place too long; keep it slowly moving across the surface of your tablecloth. I cannot be responsible for any damage to your tablecloth from ironing. BE CAREFUL!

FAQs

Laminated cotton, laminated cotton/linen blend, and laminated linen are natural fiber fabrics that have been coated with a layer of clear waterproof material. Some of the finishes are glossy, some shiny (a little less shiny than the glossy), and some have a matte finish and the finish will be included in the listing description. Some of the fabrics are lightweight and supple; some are heavier weight and a bit stiffer; both work great for most projects. The heavyweight can be a bit hard to work with on a very small project such as a 4" x 4" zipper bag. These fabrics are wonderful for tablecloths, place mats, bags, rain coats, and much more!

Wipe laminates clean with a damp washcloth. Unless otherwise noted, all of my laminates are machine washable: cold/gentle cycle. They can also be dried in the dryer on low or hung out to dry. Like all natural fibers, the laminates can shrink slightly in the wash. Laminates with strong dyes, although claiming to be color safe, may run. If that is a concern, set the color using a professional product.

Laminates, while stain resistant, are not stain proof. Foods such as tomato- and curry-based products and permanent ink are the worst culprits. My personal experience has been that if I wash the food off fairly quickly, the fabric doesn't stain. I've also had good luck using a mixture of water and bleach, applied directly to the stained area with a cotton swab. I can't, however guarantee you will have the same results or that the bleach won't damage your fabric. Please ask for a fabric sample if you'd like to test it for staining or stain removal.

The USA Federal Act of 2008, commonly known as CPSIA, states that children's products cannot contain more than 300 parts per million of lead. “Children’s products” are defined as “a consumer product designed or intended primarily for children 12 years of age or younger.” Three phthalates, DEHP, DBP, and BBP, have been permanently prohibited by Congress in concentration of more than 0.1% in “children’s toys” or “child care articles.” A “child care article” means a product that a child 3 and younger would use for sleeping, feeding, sucking or teething. Individual laminates in my shop will be marked as CPSIA compliant if the manufacturer has conducted such testing. Other laminates MAY BE compliant but have not been tested.

Some of the fabrics have been tested for BPA and will be marked as such. Others have not been tested, but that does not necessarily mean they do have BPA.

This is a tricky one. The CPSIA testing and testing for BPA are the only tests that may be required for laminated fabrics. They MAY BE food safe, but have not been tested specifically for that.
