How To Clean Your Desk

Melamine desks are not only stylish and durable but also remarkably easy to clean when done right! Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to ensure your workspace stays sparkling and pristine!


Keeping Your Workspace Sparkling Is a Lot Easier Than You May Think!

  1. Gather Your Supplies: All you need is a gentle cleaner, warm water, a soft cloth or sponge, and a dry towel for drying.
  2. Dust Off: Begin by removing any loose dust or debris from the desk surface using a microfiber cloth or a duster. This step prevents scratching during the cleaning process.
  3. Prepare Your Cleaning Solution: Mix a mild cleaning solution by diluting a small amount of gentle dish soap or all-purpose cleaner in warm water. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the melamine finish.
  4. Spot Test: Before applying the cleaning solution to the entire desk, it’s wise to spot-test a small, inconspicuous area to ensure compatibility and avoid any potential damage.
  5. Clean Gently: Dip your soft cloth or sponge into the cleaning solution and wring out any excess water. Wipe down the desk surface in gentle, circular motions, working in small sections at a time.
  6. Pay Attention to Stains: For stubborn stains or spills, you can use a bit of extra cleaning solution and gentle pressure to lift them. Avoid scrubbing too hard, as this can cause damage to the melamine finish.
  7. Rinse Thoroughly: Once you’ve cleaned the entire desk surface, use a clean, damp cloth to rinse off any remaining cleaning solution. Ensure all traces of soap or cleaner are removed to prevent streaking.
  8. Dry Completely: Finish by drying the desk surface thoroughly with a clean, dry towel to prevent water spots or streaks. Allow the desk to air dry completely before placing any items back on it.
  9. Maintain Regularly: To keep your melamine desk looking its best, dust it regularly with a microfiber cloth and clean up spills promptly to prevent staining.
