Cleaning & Care

How to Clean Corian®
Corian® solid surface is designed for carefree maintenance. Just follow the simple guidelines below to keep your Pearlstone® surfaces looking fresh and smart for years to come.

Start with Common Household Cleaners
For most residues, all you need to clean your Pearlstone® made products is warm soapy water, ammonia-based household cleaner, or a cream cleanser like Vim®. Do avoid window cleaners, however, as they can leave a waxy build-up that dulls the surface.

Preventing Heat Damage
While Corian® solid surfaces are heat resistant, as with all solid surface materials, it is important to minimize direct, long-term heat exposure to protect your surface and investment.

Important — Do not place hot pots, pans, etc. directly on the surface.  
Always use heat trivets or pads when placing hot objects on any surface. Always use a trivet under portable heat-generating appliances, such as a toaster oven. Allow cookware to cool before placing it into a sink or basin.

Preventing Other Damage
In most cases, Corian® surfaces can be repaired if damaged. Be sure to follow these guidelines to help you prevent any permanent damage to your countertop.

  • Avoid getting strong chemicals, such as paint removers, oven cleaners, etc., on your Pearlstone® product. If a spill does occur, promptly flush the surface with water to fully rinse off the chemical.
  • Boiling water alone will not damage your sink or basin. However, it is a recommended practice to run cold water from the faucet while pouring boiling water into the sink.
