Cleaning your furniture requires careful methods and mild cleansing agents, as furniture can easily be damaged by water that can warp it or harsh products that dull the furniture's finish. Although laminate furniture has a protective coating that reduces the likelihood of water damage, it is still important to take proper precautions when cleaning to maintain the lustre and the life of the furniture.

  2. 2

    Spray the non-oily furniture spray onto the cleaning cloth and wipe down the furniture to remove dust.

  3. 3

    Buff the furniture polish onto the laminate furniture's surface to fill scratches. Wipe down the surface with a clean cloth to remove excess product.

  4. 4

    Move the furniture out of direct sunlight, as the light can discolour the furniture.

    Mix 1 tbsp of baking soda with 1/4 cup of water, then coat a soft-bristled brush with the mixture. Gently scrub the surface of the furniture if it becomes stained. Wipe the surface with a clean cloth.
