Cleaning and Maintenance
Stubborn, Dried-On Stains and Spills
Use a light or non-abrasive cleanser by applying it to a clean cotton cloth or paper towel, not directly onto the surface. Use a circular motion on the affected area, rinse and dry thoroughly.
The following cleansers are recommended for use on your LaVenta surface with dried-on spills:
Soft-Scrub® Gel with Bleach
Bar Keepers Friend® Cleanser powder or cream
Simple Green® Extreme Clean
Simple Green® Lemon Fresh
Windex® Multi-Surface Cleaner
Windex® Multi-Surface Cleaner with Vinegar
When using Bar Keepers Friend Cleanser powder, first apply it to a damp clean cloth or paper towel, then squeezing together several times to form a paste before applying to your surface.
To remove any adhered material such as food, gum or nail polish, start by scraping away the excess material with a plastic plastic putty knife. Clean any remaining residue with a damp cloth.
Chemicals and Harsh Cleansers
Avoid exposing your LaVenta surface to any of the following:
Oven, grill, toilet bowl, furniture, or drain cleaners
Paint and floor strippers, or tarnish removers
Oil-based soaps and cleansers
Battery acid or any other caustic substances
Immediately rinse the area with water if your surface is exposed to these types of products. Prolonged exposure may cause discoloration or damage to your surface.
Care and Maintenance
Use a mild dish soap, such as Dawn® Ultra Original Liquid Dish Soap or Windex® Multi-Surface Cleaner for daily cleaning. You may also use a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water.
After cleaning, be sure to rinse your LaVenta surface with warm water and dry with clean, cotton cloths or paper towels.
Resistance to Heat
LaVenta is heat resistant, not heat proof. We strongly recommend using trivets or hot plates to protect your surface from damage caused by sudden temperature changes, especially when using cooking units such as electric frying pans or crock pots. Never place hot cookware directly onto your surface.
Never cut directly onto your surface, as it will result in residual metal knife marks. These are not scratches and can be removed using the same steps for treating Stubborn Stains and Spills. We strongly recommend the use of cutting boards.
No Sealer Required
Do not apply sealers or polishes to your LaVenta surface. They are not necessary and over time can make your surface appear dull and/or inconsistent.
