Care and Maintenance

Taking care of your laminate countertops is a breeze! Here are some helpful hints to keep your countertops beautiful for years to come.


  • For daily cleaning, you only need soap and water!
  • Use a soft sponge for best results. Don’t use abrasive sponges–especially on high gloss laminates.
  • Make sure you clean up all water immediately around seams to avoid any moisture damage.


  • Great news! With laminate, you have a completely non-porous countertop that doesn’t need to be resealed. Approved for use in hospitals and restaurants, laminate is one of the healthiest countertop materials for your family.
  • Most disinfecting agents are completely safe for laminate. For a complete list of approved disinfectants, visit the manufacturer’s pages below.

Removing Tough Stains

  • Although laminate is one of the most stain-resistant surface materials, sometimes pesky stains still appear.
  • To remove a stubborn stain, use a small amount of alcohol or acetone with a soft sponge.
  • Another method is to apply a paste of baking soda and water to the stain and wipe up with a soft cloth. Rinse with water afterward.
