Wood Cabinet Surfaces
As with all wood products, avoid excessive moisture. Dickson Vanity products are designed for use inside the home or other buildings and is not intended for outdoor applications. Once your vanity has been installed, wipe down all exteriors with a damp cloth to remove dust. Complete a small area at a time and wipe dry. Wood vanity finishes may be cleaned and protected by using any commercially available cleaning polish. Dickson recommends an emulsion-type cleaner (such as Murphy’s Oil Soap) or wood furniture polish (such as Pledge).
For stubborn stains, it may be necessary to use a mild detergent with warm water. Always dry the surface immediately.
Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads or powdered cleansers.
Formica Cabinet Surfaces
Exterior and interior Formica panels are extremely durable and designed to give you years of beauty and trouble-free service. UV doors and drawer fronts are sprayed and treated to resist stains, dirt, and grime build-up. They can be cleaned with most nonabrasive household cleaners. However, agents containing acetone, acetate or ethyl alcohol should not be used. Harsh solvents and/or abrasives such as turpentine may break down bonds on edge-banding and should also be avoided. Ammonia cleaners should be diluted. Certain waxes may lead to discoloration and are not recommended.
If a damp cloth does not sufficiently clean an area, a non-detergent, nonabrasive household cleaner (such as Murphy’s Oil Soap) is recommended. For stubborn stains, use mineral spirits (such as Nature Sol).
IMPORTANT NOTE: Apply solvents to a clean cloth and never directly to the cabinet surface. Never leave a cloth moistened with solvents on a cabinet surface for any length of time.
