Tips for Spring Cleaning Kitchen Countertops
Happy second day of spring! If spring cleaning your kitchen is an annual tradition, be sure to check out our knowledge area on formica.com for tutorials on how to spruce up and repair solid surface and laminate countertops.
If you are going green with your cleaning, try these simple, natural countertop remedies from The Daily Green:
Baking Soda and Water: Reclaim counters by sprinkling with baking soda, then scrubbing with a damp cloth or sponge. If you have stains, knead the baking soda and water into a paste and let set for a while before you remove. This method also works great for stainless steel sinks, cutting boards, containers, refrigerators, oven tops and more.
Kosher Salt and Water: If you need a tougher abrasive sprinkle on kosher salt, and scrub with a wet cloth or sponge.
Natural Disinfectant: To knock out germs without strong products, mix 2 cups of water, 3 tablespoons of liquid soap and 20 to 30 drops of tea tree oil. Spray or rub on countertops and other kitchen surfaces.
