Re: Seeking interior laminate advice

From what I could see in the pics, the damage looks relatively minor. I would try using a product like “Liquid Gold” or “Old English” that you can find at most grocery or home improvement stores. Teak oil could also be used, but it will stain any laminate it comes in contact with. All are oils that will help clean and recondition the wood. They will cause the scratches to darken and blend in more with the surrounding wood.

Use blue painters tape to mask off any laminate, moisten a rag with the oil, and just wipe the wood down. Easy, cheap, and you may well be satisfied with the results.
