What surfaces can I use my Meliora Cleaning Products on?

About Us Laundry Tips

Only a few products are truly needed in your cleaning supply stock. But where can you use our products safely? Are there surfaces you should avoid? We’ve put together a list to help you limit the items in your supply closet while keeping your home people- and planet-friendly.

As always, we suggest testing an inconspicuous spot for all surfaces in the off chance that the ingredients in your finishes or sealants react differently than expected.

All-Purpose Cleaner

Wipe until dry for a clean streak-free finish. Septic-Safe.

Use On:

  • Glass
  • Stone
  • Natural Tile
  • Porcelain
  • Stainless steel
  • Plastic
  • Marble
  • Grout
  • Wood - natural, stained, or sealed. Due to the wide range of surface finishes, we always recommend testing a small spot (like a corner) to ensure there aren’t adverse effects on the finish.
  • Carpet - likely fine for spot cleaning
  • Laminate floors and countertops
  • Painted walls. Spray onto a rag and wipe gently. Allow to air dry completely. Test in an inconspicuous area for effect on painted surfaces.
