A quick wipe with a damp cloth or with a cloth containing a mild solution of hand dishwashing liquid will take care of most spills on laminated countertops. Be sure to remove any puddles immediately, to avoid warping. I never used an abrasive cleaner on a plastic-laminate surface, but for more difficult stains, the husband will take care of it. J
For stubborn spots like newsprint ink, I used undiluted liquid household bleach, and I make sure that I follow the label instructions for proper use. I let the bleach stand for no more than one and half minutes, and then I rinsed it thoroughly with warm water.
How about you, how do you clean your countertops? Do you know how to prevent damages to the countertop finish? Honestly, it is very simple. Just read the label instruction on any brand of the liquid bleach and your countertops will be saved.
