minerva® does not require any specialist cleaning, simply wipe off with a damp cloth and soapy water. The work surface should then be rinsed with clean water and wiped dry. Persistent marks can be removed by using a mild abrasive cleaner, but harsh scouring powders should be avoided. Unlike marble and granite, minerva® is non-porous, hygienic and will resist most household chemicals including alcohol.
minerva® will withstand heat better than many alternative surface materials with boiling water and cooking splashes not being an issue. However, all hot pots, pans and other heat generating devices should always be placed on a trivet or worktop protector rods.
