Care and maintenance of your Corian worktop
Everyday cleaningAlthough liquids cannot penetrate Corian, it is best to wipe up spills as theyoccur. Just use a damp microfibre cloth with a standard household kitchen spray, such as Cif or Mr Muscle.
For stubborn stains, apply a small amount of Bar Keepers Friend over the stainand clean using a circular motion.
Always use a heat protection pad, trivet (with rubber feet) or protective sink matfor hot cookware, or leave cookware to cool on the hob first. Never put hot pans,particularly cast iron, directly on a Corian worktop or in a sink as such heat candamage the surface.Pouring boiling liquids into sinks without turning on the cold tap may damageyour Corian.
Like all materials Corian will develop slight abrasion marks in normal daily use:Never cut or chop on Corian. It will score the worktop. Use a chopping boardinstead.Dark, heavily pigmented colours will show scratches, dust and ordinary wear and tear more readily than lighter, textured colours.
Accidental spills of strong chemicals (e.g. paint stripper, brush cleaners, ovencleaners etc) should be flushed promptly with plenty of soapy water to avoiddamaging your worktop.
However, whatever happens Corian is inherently renewable because it is solidand homogeneous all the way through. Most damage can usually be repaired onsite to restore the originals smooth, hygienic solid surface.
