How To Clean Laminate Office Furniture

We're commonly asked about ways to effectively clean laminate furniture. You don't want to use traditional surface cleaners as they'll definitely leave streaks. The best way to clean laminate office furniture is with a light soap and water solution. A little bit goes a long way! A soapy wet rag is not what we're recommending. Mix up a little soap and water solution in a spray bottle, then spray a little bit on a paper towel. A little bit of moisture will do the trick. Once clean, wipe your surfaces down with a dry paper tower.
