Origin of stain Recommended cleaning
Daily cleaning or small stain Wiped clean with a damp cloth or sponge.
Heavy dirt Apply a small amount of soap or recommended cleaner.
Lacquer, glue, ink or cosmetic marked Use cleaner that has methylated sprits, Acetone to clean.
A bigger or deeper mark Use cleaner with Synthetic resins (Automobile cleaner) to clean out. (Do not use high concentrate cleaner and do not leave the cleaner on surface longer that 1-2 minutes)
Paraffin, sticky stain or wax Wiped out as soon as possible. Do not polish or scratch the surface of decor surface. We recommend using Iron off; By using a paper place on the dirt area, Use iron with low heat level. Stamp on the paper (stain under). This will make the stain soften and attach the paper. If the dirt cannot be removed at the first time, perform iron off again until all the dirt removed.

Please do not use thinner or high concentrate cleaner with the decor surface. The high temperature than 150 degrees centigrade may effect the surface of decor laminates, avoid the hot pan plate from oven. Please place a stainless or any material to prevent the heat to directly attach decor laminated surface.
