Thermofoil (Wood-Grain Accents) Care and Cleaning Guide

Regular Care and Cleaning (normal maintenance)
  • Always use mild dish soap and a cotton cloth or non-abrasive sponge for cleaning purposes.
  • A 50/50 mixture of water and Simple Green is acceptable too.
Removal of Stains (includes makeup, ball-point ink, and other stubborn stains)
  1. Use a damp cotton cloth or non-abrasive sponge with a 50/50 mix of water and Simple Green.
  2. Scrub lightly until the stains have been removed.
  3. If stain remains, apply a product such as standard Fantastik or standard Formula 409. Lightly wipe for 10 to 20 strokes. If not successful apply 70% Isopropyl Alcohol to a cloth or sponge and lay it on top of the stain for 30 minutes.
  4. After 30 minutes, remove and wipe. If stain persists, repeat alcohol application until stain is removed.
  • Any abrasive cleaner
  • Most solvent based cleaners and harsh chemicals such as acetone, bleach, sink & toilet bowl cleaners
  • Any cleaner in combination with a brush
  • Cleaners containing ammonia
  • Baking soda
Use of the above cleaners can prematurely age or permanently damage the Thermofoil material, voiding the warranty on this product.
