Granite and Marble Tops

Granite and marble can be quite porous, so take care to avoid staining (red wine, beetroot etc).

Avoid any product containing bleach, ammonia or lemon juice.

The easiest way to treat spills is to immediately wipe up the spill with warm soapy water (mild detergent) and a damp cloth.

For stubborn stains there are a range of granite & marble cleaners available from supermarket or try a mix of 50% methylated spirit & 50% water

Reconstituted Stone Tops

Use a cream cleanser for stubborn stains (eg CaesarStone cleanser available from CeasarStone).

Laminates

Do's and dont's

  • Never use scourers and abrasives as they will damage the surface
  • Never place hot objects, electrical appliances or pots straight from the oven or cooker onto your benchtop. Always use a trivet or similiar
  • Always use a cutting board
  • Never slide harsh objects over surface
  • Check the undersides of your plates etc to ensure they are fully glazed (and not rough)
  • Do not use strongly acidic, alkaline cleaners or bleach for normal cleaning as these can etch the surface.

General Care

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. Microfibre cloths can be used without chemicals.

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).
