I sprayed liquid starch on my doilies and the over spray got on the laminate top of the island. The doilies were stretched out on a plastic bag.

    Mix one cup of vinegar, one cup of water, three tablespoons of baking soda, and a few drops of dish soap in the the spray bottle. Shake well. Spray directly to water-safe surfaces. Allow the solution to sit a few moments, then begin to scrub with the cloth scouring pad. Repeat as needed. For stubborn spots, sprinkle baking soda over the wet surface. Apply a thick layer and more water if needed to create a paste. Scrub the paste with the scouring pad. Rinse the pad frequently, and repeat until the starch has come up. Clean any remaining residue with clean water and the washcloth and/or towels.

    Or you can try a method that not to many people are aware of. Regular toothpaste rubbed into the laminate. Wipe with a clean white cloth until the residue is off. If you need to clean further just use white vinegar and water in a spray bottle.

    Another way to starch your doilies: after laundering them, soak in liquid starch and wring out excess. Use wig pins to stretch the doilie out on a piece of dense styrofoam and let it dry.
