Runnels--cleaning and care
We are set on Richlite (paperstone) counters and are also really keen on having runnels cut in (those grooves that serve as a built-in drain board). The Richlite fabricator recommended against it b/c they would be hard to keep clean and there could also be issues with the sealant breaking down b/c of the extensive water contact.
We realize that it will be a bit more maintenance (cleaning frequently, and maybe re-sealing more frequently than the rest of the counter). Any runnels lovers out there care to comment on their experiences?
