Keeping your kitchen and bathroom clean, hygienic and looking great for years to come means using the right products and techniques. This is true for whatever materials you’ve used in your space, including Formica countertops and Formica countertop edges. Here’s a guide to keeping this popular and stylish countertop looking stylish and sparkling clean.
- Every day cleaning: Simply take a clean, non-abrasive cloth or sponge and wipe down your countertop with a mild liquid detergent/household cleaner. Rinse with clean water. Don’t let water pool or sit on the surface, especially by the joins and seams.
- High gloss laminate: Even mild detergents can leave a residue on the countertop. Restore your glossy look by wiping the countertop and edges down with a mild glass cleaner.
- Sculpted and textured laminate: These laminate countertops have indents and patterns in them that may trap debris. Use a soft, nylon hand brush and gently clean the area using some mild detergent and a rotating motion.
- Avoid abrasive and chemical cleaning solutions: Hard bristle brushes, scouring powders and detergents containing acid, alkali or sodium hypochlorite (like bleach, lime scale removers, oven cleaners and ceramic cooktop cleaners) will leave lasting damage on the surface of your countertops. Scratches, wear, corrosion and discoloration can leave your countertop aesthetically damaged as well as compromise its hygienic features. Always remember, gentle is best for laminate! If you’re unsure that your cleaning products are safe to use on your laminate, you can use a mixture of ¼ white vinegar to water for everyday cleaning.
