Caring for your laminate countertops has never been easier…
For everyday cleaning use a clean, damp, non-abrasive cloth with a mild detergent or household cleaner.
For dusting use a non-oily furniture spray. This may also help hide small scratches.
Use a hot pad or trivet to avoid placing hot pans or dishes directly on the laminate surface.
Do not use cleaners containing acid, alkali, or bleach. This includes cleaners made for toilets, tubs, tiles, ovens, rust, metal, ceramic cook tops, and lime/mineral deposits. If you’re unsure about a particular cleaning agent, contact the manufacturer to ensure its compatibility with laminate surfaces.
Do not allow bottles, rags, or anything else that may have harsh chemicals to contact your laminate countertop. This includes hair dyes, clothing dyes, and food coloring.
For difficult stains apply a paste of baking soda and water to draw out the stain. Blot away with a damp cloth. Don’t rub the stain, as it may set back into the laminate.
To remove pen or pencil stains you may use solvents such as denatured alcohol or nail polish remover on your laminate countertop. Use a small amount and repeat until the stain is removed. Rinse the surface thoroughly, clean as usual.
Ceramics, earthenware, and other rough bottomed objects could scratch the laminate surface. Use a placemat or other protective underlay with these items.
Do not iron or even place a hot iron on the laminate surface. Do not place curling irons or hot rollers directly on the laminate surface.
Keep lit cigarettes from directly contacting laminate surface.
Knives and other sharp utensils could slice or scratch the laminate surface. Do not use scouring pads or steel wool on the laminate surface.
Heavy impact can chip or crack the laminate surface, do not drop objects on your laminate countertop.
To remove stuck-on residue, scrub with a nylon bristled brush, such as a toothbrush or dish scrubber.
