I am so tired of constantly scrubbing our placemats. My kids seem to be messy despite outgrowing toddlerhood by now and it seems like I just can't win.

What do you do with your place mats? Are they the clothes type that you can just throw in the washer and then iron? If so, how are those holding shape after long term use?

Mine are the straw type that you just wipe and/or wash and I am doing that all the time (seems like!).

So... what do you do for place mats in your house and how is it working for you?

P.S. I like for my kitchen table to look pretty so it all does have to match and look nice. That may be too much I am asking for!
