Nick and I just got new furniture a few weeks ago. It's a lminite type wood. I'm not sure if that is what it is really called or not.

Anyway....I'm trying to figure out what I am supposed to be cleaning it with. If I use pledge it streaks. I tried spraying some glass cleaner on a paper towel and dusting it off with that. It seems to work ok, but I'm not sure if it is damaging or what I am supposed to use.

Any suggestions?

I have a product called "Countertop Magic" which I use on my kitchen countertops and table, both of which are laminate surfaces, so I'm sure it would work just fine on wood laminate furniture, also. I think I got it at Home Depot.

I have laminate flooring and when it was put in I was told to use NO cleaning solution b/c it leaves a residue and can damage it. I am supposed to use just a mild soap and damp cloth.

Yeah, I don't know, I've heard that, too....but then why does Pergo make a Pergo wood laminate floor cleaner for its floors? I had Pergo floors in the duplex I rented some years ago and cleaned them with a weak sudsy ammonia solution and that worked just fine. The DoItYourself website recommends vinegar and water: http://doityourself.com/laminate/lamflclean.htm
Shaw floors website says don't use soap and water: http://www.shawfloors.com/FloorCare/LaminateCare.asp

I don't know....I think all these conflicting cleaning recommendations make it too hard....make people paranoid about damaging their floors. It's not the cleaning that's going to be hardest on the floor, it's the abrasion from NOT cleaning it.
