4 steps for laminate benchtop cleaning

Part of the beauty of laminate for kitchen benchtops – or even for a splashback – is that it’s easy to clean and maintain.

Follow these steps for effective laminate benchtop cleaning:

  1. For simple cleaning, use a damp cloth, along with a mild liquid detergent-and-water solution or household cleaner such as Ajax Spray n Wipe or Mr. Muscle Surface & Glass.
  2. Clean the soiled area using a rotating motion.
  3. Blot with a clean, damp, non-abrasive cotton cloth.
  4. Rinse and dry the surface.

When it comes to cleaning laminate benchtops, less is more. Never use abrasive cleaners, powders, scouring pads, steel wool, sandpaper, etc. These can damage the surface finish and make it susceptible to staining.
