Cleaning laminate stains from everyday Liverpool life

The average Liverpool home sees a lot of action on any given day, and this may leave the occasional mark on your laminate floor.

Laminate floors should never be sanded or cleaned using abrasive cleaners or scouring pads, and manufacturers generally recommend a suitable cleaning solution. If this doesn’t do the trick for a particular stain though, there are other methods you can safely try.

Heel marks and other scuffs

Scuffs on your laminate can be removed with a soft pencil eraser.


If you have a young child who likes to draw on the floor when you’re not looking, you can remove crayon from laminate by adding a little white spirit to a damp cloth and wiping it away.

Red wine and other drinks

The people of Liverpool love to entertain, but the occasional spill of cabernet sauvignon isn’t the nightmare it can be with carpet. A wipe with a damp cloth should be sufficient.

Nail polish

You may think that nail polish would be difficult to remove, but you simply need to use your nail polish remover and wipe up the debris with a warm, damp cloth.


If blood gets dried onto your laminate, a touch of window cleaner spray should enable you to wipe it up with a damp cloth.

Chewing gum

The trick here is to get a knife underneath the gum and prize it off, but avoid using a metal knife as this may scratch. The residue can then be rubbed off with a soft cloth and a little white spirit.
