Cleaning laminate kitchen countertops without leaving streaks is an easy job and if done properly will make your whole kitchen sparkle. It can be done in a couple of easy steps using things you probably have around the house.


Remove everything from your kitchen countertops such as canisters, cutting boards, and small appliances. Clean the countertop with a good dishwashing liquid and water. This will remove any grease or dirt on the countertop that has built up. All kitchens will have some grease on counters and other surfaces if it's used very often. Rinse with clean water and allow to dry.

Remove Streaks

To obtain a streak-free countertop you will need to remove any soap residue and restore the original luster of the countertop. To do this, mix one cup of warm water with 2 tablespoons of vinegar and put it in the spray bottle. Mist this on your countertops then wipe dry with a clean rag. this will not only remove streaks and shine the countertops, it will also deodorize your kitchen.


To keep the cleaning of the countertops to a minimum, rub them down with lemon oil after each cleaning. This will keep them streak-free and shining.
