ROUTINE CARE

img

To clean the surface, use a damp cloth or sponge and a mild soap or detergent. Difficult stains such as coffee or tea can be removed using a mild household cleaner/detergent and a soft bristled brush, repeating as necessary.

If a stain persists, use a paste of baking soda and water and apply with a soft bristled brush. Light scrubbing for 10 to 20 strokes should remove most stains. Although baking soda is a low abrasive, excessive scrubbing or exerting too much force could damage the decorative surface, especially if it has a gloss finish.

Stubborn stains that resist any of the above cleaning methods may require the use of undiluted household bleach or nail polish remover. Apply the bleach or nail polish remover to the stain and let stand no longer than two minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and wipe dry. This step may be repeated if the stain appears to be going away and the color of the laminate has not been affected.

Hot pans and heat-producing appliances (such as electric skillets), when set directly upon counter tops, can mar the product’s beauty. Always use a heat shield, hot pad or trivet

WARNING "Prolonged exposure of the laminate surface to bleach will cause discoloration."

A FEW NOTES OF CAUTION

  • Acidic or abrasive cleaners can damage laminate surfaces; do not use them

  • Drain cleaners containing lye will permanently damage any Laminate surface. If you spill a drain cleaner, wipe it up immediately and rinse several times with water.

  • Hair, textile and food dyes can cause permanent stains. If dye should happen to spill, wipe it up immediately with dish washing detergent or an all-purpose cleaner.

  • Never place pots or dishes directly from the oven or burner on an unprotected laminate surface; such extreme heat can cause cracking or blistering.

  • Do not work with oven cleaners on an unprotected counter top. Wipe spills away promptly and rinse several times with water.

  • Rust removers contain harsh chemicals which will quickly cause permanent damage. If a spill occurs, wipe off all residues immediately, wash thoroughly with soapy water and rinse several times.

  • Steel wool and other abrasive pads will damage Laminate. Don’t use them for cleaning and don’t store steel wool pads on your counter top; the metal can rust and leave stains.

  • Toilet bowl cleaners contain harsh chemicals that can cause permanent damage. If spills occur, wipe up immediately, wash surface with soapy water and rinse several times.
