    As above but eucalyptus oil instead of metho :-)

    Just check what ever you use isn't silicone based, this is what leaves that greasy kind of residue on laminate / melamine

    'Chemicals' will eventually strip the laminate it is just a paper pressed onto a MDF type product, as long as water isn't 'sitting' on top of the boards it will be fine :-)

    Hot water & your fave essential oil (just a few drops) will do the trick!

    You don't use a lot, just a cap full in a bucket of warm water. It disinfects plus air dries incredibly fast and does not leave residue. You can add tea tree oil if you want it to smell good or eucalyptus.
