ROUTINE MAINTENANCE

For daily cleaning, a damp microfibre cloth is sufficient. For regular cleaning, we suggest using a neutral liquid detergent with a soft sponge or microfibre cloth.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR KITCHEN COUNTERTOP

Stubborn deposits can be removed with a slightly abrasive sponge; if necessary, use a specially formulated stain remover (see table). Do not use steel wool pads.

PRECAUTIONS

Remove any spills of staining liquids (like coffee, tea, red wine), caustic substances (such as oven cleaner), acids and colourants as soon as possible and rinse with water. FLORIM stone porcelain countertops are particularly resistant to thermal shocks. You can place hot pans directly on the surface, however we recommend using trivets to protect the surface over time. Ceramic knives can damage the surface; use a cutting board. Avoid hitting the most delicate parts of the surface, such as its corners and edges.
