Common Sense Care
Hot pads. Make sure to use hot pads with your Formica laminate countertops to help protect from scorching and burns. Any hot material left on the surface for too much time will cause the laminate to separate from its core material.
Cutting board. Implement the use of cutting boards to protect against scratches. Don’t chop, slice or hammer directly on your Formica laminate. And, be weary of sliding ceramics or other abrasive materials.
Keep them Clean
Spills. Don’t allow spills to sit. Wipe up any messes as soon as you can and be mindful especially near any seams. A non-abrasive cloth with the help of a gentle soap will eliminate stains and keep your countertops clean.
Gentle cleaners. A mild soap or detergent is the optimal option for cleaning up your spills. Do not use a cleaner that contains sodium hypochlorite, acid or alkali. Specific types of cleaning agents to avoid include chlorine bleach, lime scale removers, metal cleaners, oven cleaners and tub/tile cleaners. Most all-purpose type cleaners are often a good choice.
