Cleaning And Removing Stains From Plastic Surfaces

Plastic is very common in households as it has many uses. It’s very easy to clean it, but be careful not to scratch it when doing that.

For the usual cleaning process, you will need some mild detergent, a spray kitchen cleaner, a sponge, a bucket, some water, a nylon bristled brush or a vegetable brush, some mild glass cleaner, a few soft cloths and some paper towels.

1. Start by filling the bucket with water and adding some of the detergent.

2. Moisten one of the soft cloths in the detergent water and wipe the plastic surfaces to get rid of the dirt and grime.

3. Apply some of the kitchen cleaner on the area.

4. If there are any stubborn areas, use the sponge. If you’re going to use the rough side of the sponge, know that if you apply too much pressure you may scratch the plastic.

5. For textured surfaces, scrub in circular motion with the nylon bristled brush.

6. Wipe away all residues with a cloth.

7. Dampen a cloth in clean water and rinse the surface.

8. Dry it with a cloth.

9. Using a paper towel, buff it to give back its shine.

10. If the cleaning solution has left any streaks on the glossy finish, clean by spraying with mild glass cleaner and wiping away with a clean cloth.

Luckily, plastic doesn’t absorb any stains, so they just have to be loosened and wiped away.

You will need Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, some mild detergent in case you don’t have the Magic Eraser, some warm water, a few soft cloths and some paper towels.

1. Start by rubbing the stain with the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Even if this doesn’t remove all of the stain, most of it will be cleaned.

2. If you don’t have the Magic Eraser, then mix some water and mild detergent in a bucket and dampen a soft cloth in it.

3. Rub the stain gently.

4. Moisten a cloth in clean water and rinse the surface with it.

5. Dry with a towel.

6. Restore the shine by buffing with a paper towel.

If you don’t want your hands getting wet, use a pair of rubber gloves.

Be careful with the water – try not to flood laminate countertops as you may ruin the glue that holds them together.

Don’t use any abrasive cleansers or you will scratch any plastic surface.

You can also try Tilex or some other tile cleaner that has bleach to remove stains.
