Answer 1Over the years, I have used many products. I think the most important point is to not damage the Formica surface by always using a gentle cleaner, and NEVER use chemically aggressive [chlorine containing products] or mechanically abrasive [scouring powders or pads] products.

I generally use Dawn dishwashing liquid for softening and removing dried or or difficult to remove materials, and then a final wipe down with a cloth saturated with undiluted distilled white vinegar to disinfect and leave a shine. j3h.
