Formica is usually put down with contact cement. Contact cement can be
released with lacquer thinner. If there is a loose spot around the edge,
squirt some lacquer thinner under it and let it sit for a few minutes,
then carefully work a putty knife under and see if it is releasing at
all. If so, continue applying lacquer thinner and lifting the Formica
until it all comes loose.
