Usually a moist cloth is sufficient, but use washing-up liquid to get rid of any grease . Stubborn dirt can be removed with an organic solvent such as methylated spirits or alcohol. Brushes with hard bristles (but not wire brushes) may also be used. Never use abrasive cleansers or pads as these may damage the surface.
Unfortunately you cannot. The High Gloss finishes are not as durable as the ordinary laminate worktops, although in a modern, low traffic kitchen they do look stunning.
To use the 50ml cartridge system you will require an applicator gun which can be obtained from your distributor. You can not apply the adhesive without this applicator.

The repair kit is a resin material made to match the colour of the work surface. This needs to be mixed thoroughly prior to use and needs to be used by an experienced fitter.
Minerelle is a homogeneous mineral based solid surfacing material with natural mineral fillers and high grade engineered resins directly coated to an environmentally friendly core board and balanced with a non-porous resin and recycled filler mixture. All factory edged tops ensure full resistance to moisture and water ingress. Minerelle is made in 58mm & 41mm thick for kitchens and 30mm thick for bathrooms.
Advice on Living with Your Worktop
Please do not cut or chop directly on the worktop surface – always use a chopping board or worktop saver.
Always place hot pans, ovenware and irons on a trivet or protective pad to protect the surface from the intense heat which can cause damage to the worktop if placed directly on the surface. The use of abrasive cleaners and pads, corrosive or aggressive cleaning agents should be avoided as they will have a detrimental effect on the worktop surface. The use of PVC aprons may affect the durability of the HPL on the post-formed edge of worktops, and could lead to premature wear in high traffic work areas such as in front of the sink and hob.
Kettles, coffee machines, fryers and other heat or damp source should not be positioned directly over worktop joints. Constant changes in temperature could lead to failure of the joint. Cuts and scratches will be more noticeable on dark decors and gloss finishes.
