Maintenance and Care

Keeping Melteca/Melamine surfaces clean is easy.

Regular cleaning simply involves wiping with a clean, damp cloth.

For stubborn grease and grime use diluted vinegar and water or sugar soap.

The most important thing is to catch the stain early. Wiping it with hot soapy water is the first thing to try, however for tougher stains we recommend trying:

Foodstuffs – all-purpose surface cleaner

Shoe polish – diluted vinegar or lemon juice

Paint/glue – acetone then wipe with warm soapy water and wipe dry

Hair/leather dye – methylated spirits

Stubborn marks or stains – clean with Ajax spray and wipe; a soft
nylon nail brush will assist if dirt particles prove hard to move

NEVER use any of the following on Melteca/Melamine for any

Abrasive cleaners – such as:

  • Jif
  • Vim
  • Brasso
  • Mr Muscle cleaner
  • Wire wool
  • Sandpaper
