Few things are more flattering than being invited into a friend’s cozy home for a holiday dinner party – it’s an indication that they think you’re worth all the requisite hours of planning, prepping, and, let’s face it, stressing. So, imagine the horror of eagerly scooting your chair up to the dinner table only to have your glass of Cabernet wobble on its base and spill onto your host’s treasured tablecloth.
Short of pulling the linens out from under your fellow diners, there’s not much you can do to fully treat the trouble spot right away. But don’t slink under the table just yet. Help is on the way, and you can likely find it right in your host’s pantry.
