Care & Maintenance


To clean the surface, use a damp cloth or sponge and a mild soap or detergent. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and wipe dry.

Difficult stains such as coffee or tea can be removed using a mild household cleaner/detergent and a soft bristled brush, repeating as necessary.

If a stain persists, use a paste of baking soda and water and apply with a soft bristled brush. Light scrubbing for 10 to 20 strokes should remove most stains. Although baking soda is a low abrasive, excessive scrubbing or exerting too much force could damage the decorative surface, especially if it has a gloss finish.

Stubborn stains that resist any of the above cleaning methods may require the use of undiluted household bleach or nail polish remover. Apply the bleach or nail polish remover to the stain and let stand no longer than two minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and wipe dry. This step may be repeated if the stain appears to be going away and the color of the laminate has not been affected. WARNING: Prolonged exposure of the laminate surface to bleach will cause discoloration.

Hot pans and heat-producing appliances (such as electric skillets), when set directly upon countertops, can mar the product’s beauty. Always use a heat shield, hot pad or trivet.

Treat with care, as you would with any fine furniture. We recommend dusting frequently with a clean, soft, dry, lint‐free cloth and occasional cleaning with a clean, soft, dry lint‐free cloth and a high‐grade furniture polish that does not contain silicone or wax. Clean the surface by rubbing in the direction of the grain.

Coasters should be used under glasses. Water left over a long period of time will cause white spots in the finish. Clean up spills immediately. Use a blotting rather than a wiping action. Avoid placing in direct sunlight, as sunlight causes fading and color change. Place your table away from heat and air vents to avoid extreme changes in temperature. Don\’t place near sources of moisture. Humidifiers and exposure to other types of moisture can damage wood\’s finish.

Avoid placing plastic or rubber materials (lamp bases, notebooks, placemats, etc.) on your furniture, as certain plastics contain ingredients that may damage the finish. Use pads, cloth or felt to protect the furniture surface from plastic, rubber, hot dishes, beverages, bookends, flowerpots, etc.. Use a protective pad when writing with a ballpoint pen on the furniture surface.

Lift and place objects rather than dragging them across the furniture surface.


Marble and granite, while hard and smooth, is not impervious to staining and scratching. The secret of preserving marble and granite in its original state is to keep it clean and avoid harsh chemicals. Do not use products that contain lemon, vinegar or other acids as a high acid content may etch the surface. Do not use scouring powders or creams as they may scratch the surface. Marble or granite should be washed often with clear, luke warm water on a clean soft cloth and cleaned more thoroughly twice a year with a mild detergent solution formulated for use on natural stone. It is strongly recommended that spills be wiped up immediately, as food and beverages are likely to damage stone. A coating of clear carnauba wax will help protect the surface and facilitates maintenance. Rewash after each cleaning. If through accident, or negligence, stains appear on surface, we then recommend you hire a professional natural stone restoration expert.


Washing with soap and water is usually sufficient to remove surface dirt or residue. Ammonia based liquid cleaner (not window cleaner) may also be used. Always rinse surface thoroughly and wipe dry. Drying is an important step, preventing a build‐up of soap film or cleaning residue, which can create the appearance of light scratches over time. Stubborn soap film or cleaning build‐up in Corian is easily removed with an abrasive cleaner rubbed into the surface using a white Scotch‐Brite™ page. When finished, rinse thoroughly and wipe dry. Avoid surface contact with chlorinated solvents, chloroform, ketones, methylene chloride(paint removers), very strong acids such as concentrated sulfuric acids, hydrochloric acids and drain cleaners. For additional care and cleaning instructions


Clean KrystalCast® and KrystalGlo® surfaces by washing with warm water and mild soap or dishwashing liquid. Do not use solvents such as acetone, lacquer, thinner, gasoline, undiluted alcohol or benzene. KrystalCast® and KrystalGlo® can be restored to its original finish by using a green 3M Scotch‐Brite™ pad. For deep scratch removal, use 320 grit or 400 grit sand paper followed by a green 3M Scotch‐Brite™ pad to achieve the same satin finish.


Clean with a non‐streaking, non‐ammonia‐based window cleaner. Spray the glass lightly and then wipe dry with a dry, clean, lint free terry cloth. Continue lightly drying the glass in circular motions until the moisture disappears. Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, razor blades, scouring powders or highly acidic/alkaline cleaners.


Clean with a mild soap solution and rinse with clean, clear water. Wipe the entire surface and follow with a clean, dry cloth to buff dry.


Clean with a wet cloth or window cleaner. For scuff marks or heavy soiling, a non‐abrasive automotive chrome polish can be applied as directed.


Routine cleaning can be accomplished using warm water and a cloth. For a deeper clean, wipe the surface down with mild detergent, warm water and a cloth. Rinse thoroughly and wipe dry with a towel or cloth to prevent water spots. Wipe in the directions of the polish lines for best results.


Planters need to be cleaned regularly to remove dirt and dust accumulation. To clean fiberglass plant containers, wipe down their exterior with a damp cloth, lightly removing persistent dirt. For an additional clean on smooth and glossy finish planters, it’s best to use warm soapy water and a soft sponge. The same mild soap solution can be used together with a soft bristle brush to remove dirt, stains, mold, mineral and/or algae deposits from ribbed and textured planters.
