Tips: How to Clean Laminate

It doesn't have to be spring for you to give your laminate countertops a deep clean!

Here are a few tips for giving your laminate countertops a refresh:

  • For simple cleaning, use a nylon bristled hand or vegetable brush, along with a mild liquid detergent-and-water solution or household cleaner.

  • For tough stains, use full-strength Fantastik® All Purpose Cleaner, Formula 409®, Pine-Sol® (original formulation) or other mild household cleaner and allow it to draw out the stain (test the cleaner on a small, discreet area first; Formica Corporation cannot be held responsible if a cleaner changes its formulation and it harms the laminate).

  • Clean the soiled area using a rotating motion.

  • Blot with a clean, damp, non-abrasive cotton cloth.

  • Rinse and dry the surface.

When it comes to cleaning laminate countertops, 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.
