Looking for suggestions on how to make my arborite countertops look clean and shiny - I have an open house coming up and I'd like the kitchen to have some "wow factor" :D

Cleaning an arborite countertop

Welcome to Mrs. Clean's forum!

Here is information that I found on Since this is a specific type of laminate, I wanted to give you the manufacturer's recommendations:

To clean a laminate surface, simply wipe with a soft damp cloth and mild detergent; then rinse thoroughly with warm water and wipe dry. For stubborn stains, use an all-purpose cleaner, with a damp cloth; then rinse thoroughly with warm water and wipe dry.

For really tough stains, create a paste composed of baking soda and water. Using a soft brush, scrub gently in a circular motion – 10 to 20 strokes should remove most stains; then rinse thoroughly with warm water and wipe dry. Keep in mind that excessive scrubbing can dull or damage the finish.

Good luck on the open house!
