Cleaning Melamine

Melamine products are extremely durable and built to last. They can be cleaned with most non-abrasive household cleaners.

How to clean your melamine cabinets

Wipe down the surface with a damp moist cloth

If needed, use a non-detergent, nonabrasive household cleaner

Use mineral spirits (such as Nature Sol) for more stubborn stains

Cleaning substances to avoid:

  • Cleaning products containing acetone, acetate or ethyl alcohol
  • Harsh solvents and/or abrasives such as turpentine
  • Ammonia cleaners should be diluted
  • Certain waxes may lead to discoloration

Apply solvents to a clean cloth and never directly to the melamine surface. Never leave a cloth moistened with solvents on a surface for any length of time.

Cleaning Wood

  • Routine dusting is recommended on wood surfaces
  • Clean the wood surface with a quality cleaner or flax soap formatted especially for use with wood furniture. Dilute the solution in accordance with the manufacturer’s directions.
  • Dampen but do not saturate a soft cloth with the diluted cleaning solution and wipe the surface, in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints.
  • Wipe surface clean with a soft, dry cloth.

Oils and ammonia should never be used on wood furniture.

Waxing Wood

  • Quality spray wax may be applied sparingly twice a year.
  • Excessive waxing may result in a sticky build-up.

Cleaning Hardware

Use mild soap and warm water to clean door/drawer knobs or pulls, thoroughly dry all hardware joints and surfaces and the surrounding with a clean, soft cloth.

Many brass and silver polishes contain harsh chemicals that can damage the hardware’s surface. These polishes and cleaners are NOT recommended.

Protecting your wood product installation

  • Use felt, leather or cork pads on the bottom of equipment or accessories to help protect the finish against dents, scratches, moisture and liquids
  • Lift objects when you move them, instead of pulling or pushing them across the surface, to avoid scratching
  • Avoid leaving vinyl binders or other products on wood surfaces for long periods
  • If you use a protective glass top, insert felt pads between the glass and the top of the product to create an air space and allow the wood to breathe
  • Avoid extreme temperatures and humidity. Maintain temperatures between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity levels between 30 and 50 percent
