Care & Maintenance
For general care and maintenance, most spills or marks simply wipe away with a damp cloth or use an all purpose cleaner such as Windex spray cleaner or Ajax Spray n Wipe. Rubbing gently with a clean, dry cloth brings back the brightness of laminates. With a few sensible precautions, your Laminex laminate surface will enjoy a long lifespan.
General Care - Information
Avoid scourers and abrasives as they will damage the surface. Don't place hot objects, electrical appliances or pots straight from the oven or cooker onto your Laminex laminate surface. Don't cut on the Laminex laminate surface. Do not use strongly acidic, alkaline cleaners or bleach for normal cleaning as these might etch the surface.
General Care - Streaks
Streaky marks sometimes show on dark colours after cleaning. An all-purpose cleaner such as Windex spray cleaner or Ajax Spray n Wipe usually removes them.
General Care - Grease
Using a mild dishwashing detergent in water will remove greasy marks. Dab, wait and wipe away. Finish with an all-purpose cleaner such as Windex spray cleaner or Ajax Spray n Wipe.
General Care - Spills
Laminex laminate surfaces resist staining from most household chemicals. With some accidental spills however, prompt action is essential. Wipe off beetroot, grape and berry juices, first aid
preparations, concentrated bleach, oven cleaners, dishwasher detergents, artificial dyes, hair colouring and solvent based pen ink immediately. Specialty glues such as Super Glue must also be removed straight away with acetone (nail polish remover).
General Care - Stains
If the stain won't budge with Extra Strength Windex, try methylated spirits or dab the stain with a diluted bleach mixture (1 part bleach to 8 parts water); leave for 3 minutes then wash off with water anddry. Finish off ith Extra Strength Windex. Only as a last resort if a stain persists try 2 or 3 rubs with a crème cleanser or white toothpaste, wash and dry. Please note that bleach or these abrasive cleaners may irreversibly damage the laminate surface.
General Care - Scratches
Laminex laminate surfaces will withstand normal wear and tear, but can be damaged by scratching or cutting with utensils, knives and unglazed pottery. Darker colours will show scratches more readily than lighter colours. In general, dark colours and high gloss surfaces require more care and maintenance than lighter colours or lower gloss colours. To minimise scratching, always place and lift objects from the surface – never drag or slide them across the surface.
Wipe off spills or marks promptly with gentle rubbing using a soft cloth and mild dishwashing detergent. Dry with a soft, dry cloth. For more persistent marks, use a glass window cleaner. Never use abrasive cleaners – even hose in liquid form – as they will mark the high gloss surface.
