FAQ

  • What are the dimensions of a roll of Dekel? Each roll measures 1.95’ wide x 9.8’ long (23.5” x 118”), for a total of 20 sq. ft. (3 meters wide X 60 cm long).

  • What’s the difference between Dekal and “regular” contact paper? There are several differences. Since regular contact paper is designed to be a permanent cover, it is extremely sticky, hard to work with, and difficult to remove. 

    Dekal is made of PET, a lightweight but strong material that resists water, oil, and heat. It has a low adhesive backing covered specifically designed with a light adhesive that is strong enough to adhere to the surface without sticking so tightly as to make any damage when removed.

  • What kind of surfaces can I cover with Dekal? Dekal is suitable for most countertops, including: granite, laminate, quartz, marble, soapstone, tile, stainless steel, Corian, Formica, and more. It is not recommended for wooden surfaces, glass, or walls.

  • Is it hard to apply Dekal? Dekal is easy on, easy off. You can apply Dekal yourself, but it also makes a great family activity! Simply measure, cut, peel, and stick!

  • Does water seep under Dekal? Dekal is water-resistant and oil-resistant. Throughout Yom Tov, Dekal will be easy to wipe clean of spills or spatters. No mildew will form underneath it.

  • Can I put a hot pot on Dekal? Yes, Dekal can handle a hot pot being placed on it. (Best to avoid exposure to extreme or prolonged heat, since it could make Dekal more difficult to remove. Cutting directly on Dekal is also not recommended; it's best to cut on a cutting board.)

  • Can I reuse Dekal? Dekal is not reusable. After the holiday, remove and discard it.

  • Will Dekal damage my countertops? At the end of the holiday, Dekal is completely removable, and it should not damage your countertops or leave smelly mildew. When Pesach is over, simply peel the Dekal away and wash your countertop with hot water and soft sponge. If residue remains, remove it with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, hot soapy water, counter-cleaning spray, or Goo Gone. If using steel wool, take care not to scratch the countertop, particularly those made of laminate (Formica).

  • By using Dekal, you have avoided the tasks of scrubbing and storing reusable covers, or ripping away tape or foil or super-sticky and messy contact paper. Throughout Pesach, your kitchen counters remained neat and beautiful, and now you can restore your post-Pesach kitchen to its original state!

  • If I need more than one sheet to cover my surface, should I overlap the Dekal? Dekal works on any shape or size countertop. If you need more than one piece to cover an area, simply put one piece of Dekal next to another vertically. No water, oil, or dirt will seep underneath the seam.

  • Is Dekal kosher for Passover? Dekal conforms to the highest standard of kashrus. It is the first countertop cover with Kosher for Passover certification (BaDaTz Yerushalayim). That means you will have no worries about food being in direct contact with your countertops covered by Dekal.

  • How do I order Dekel? You can order Dekal shipped to your door in the continental United States. Free shipping for orders of three rolls or more! You can also see Dekal for yourself at a store near you (coming to kosher stores in the tri-state area in early April).
