MAINTENANCE: Ceramic tops should be cleaned with a wet sponge and a mild detergent. Do not use abrasive cleaning products. Do not use a steam cleaner. For best results, it is recommended that you use a limestone cleaning gel. It is best to remove fresh stains as quickly as possible as there is the potential risk that over time the stain can penetrate the pores of the ceramic. In the event that a stain has been present on the ceramic for some time, use a solution mixed from bicarbonate soda and water. Rub the surface, allowing the solution to penetrate the stain, and then wipe it off with a wet sponge.
