Q: Our white kitchen countertop, made of plastic laminate, is stained from spills of things like red wine, curry and fruit juice. How can I clean it?
A: Try and remove the stains with a household cleaner such as Fantastik All Purpose Cleaner or Pine Sol. After applying some of the cleaner to a stain, scrub with a nylon-bristle brush or vegetable brush, and then rinse with clear water. Use water very sparingly near seams, which can absorb water and cause the counter-top's substrate to swell.
