How do you clean engraved laminate after processing?

If smoke residue occurs on the piece of laminate during laser processing, clean it off using methylated spirits. Simply wipe it off with a cloth moistened with methylated spirits, then immediately wipe it with a clean, dry cloth. Nano sponges (often referred to as dirt erasers) can also be helpful when cleaning laminates. When cleaning glossy surfaces, carry out a test on a sample piece in order to determine whether the surface is affected by the methylated spirits (for example, whether it turns matte).
