Care & Maintenance
For cleaning and disinfecting, it is safe to use the following procedure on your Hanex Solid Surface countertops:
A solution of 70% denatured alcohol* and 30% water. Mix well. Then using a clean microfiber or cotton cloth, wipe down the entire countertop surface and edges. Rinse the areas just cleaned using a damp cloth.
Repeat this procedure several times per day – or as often as necessary to control the spread of germs.
*Note: Denatured alcohol is a solvent and has additives (including a pungent odor) that are meant to prevent consumption. While marginally less effective, isopropyl or rubbing alcohol can be substituted and used at full strength. Please note that for any of these alcohol-based products, follow the manufacturers instructions with regard to use and safety precautions, including the following.
- Do not mix with other chemicals. Use only water for the purpose of diluting.
- Alcohol is flammable. Do not use around open flames or other ignition source.
- Use with proper ventilation as fumes can be harmful or irritating.
- May cause skin irritation – especially in open wounds. Never ingest or consume any of the products listed. Keep away from children.
Simple Steps to Avoid Damage
Avoid cutting directly on Hanex Solid Surfaces, always use a cutting board.
Never place hot pans directly on the countertop. Even though Hanex Solid Surfaces can withstand temperatures up to 350°F, prolonged periods or extreme heat could cause permanent damage.
Strong acids, such as those found in drain cleaners should be flushed with water immediately. Some of these items, when left on surface may cause whitening, which can be difficult to remove.
Removing Persistent Stains
To remove persistent stains, cigarette burns or scratches: Scrub the stained area with a mild abrasive cleanser using blue Scotch Brite™? pad.
For deep scratches and/or other damages which may require an expert repair, please contact your Authorized Hanex Solid Surfaces Repair Agent or Certified Hanex Solid Surfaces Fabricator.
