How to Clean Quartz Countertops
There are many types of countertops that people can choose to put in their kitchen but few look as good as quartz. There is just something very appealing about quartz countertops whether it’s in it’s natural or engineered form. The problem is that many people do not know how to clean quartz countertops. In reality, it’s pretty simple but there are definitely some do’s and don’ts to follow when doing it. Here is the best way to clean quartz countertops.
What Not to Do
Before one can learn how to clean quartz countertops, you must first know what not to do. You never want to use acidic cleaners on quartz such as homemade vinegar solutions. This can discolor it badly if you are not careful. You also never want to use anything abrasive on quartz countertops because this can scratch it or dull its finish.
Steps to Cleaning Quartz Countertops
If you seriously want to know how to clean quartz countertops this is the way that it should be done.
Step 1: Wipe the counter down using a soft cloth lightly soaked with a mild dishwashing detergent. Use a circular motion when wiping and apply a medium amount of pressure while doing it. This is really all you need to do to keep a quartz countertop clean if you do this regularly (several times a week). If it’s been a long time since you cleaned your quartz countertop you may have to buy a special quartz countertop cleaner. Make sure you follow the directions on the bottle of this cleaner to get your countertop to turn out looking right.
Step 2: Now that your quartz countertop is clean, it may not shine up the way that you want it to. Grab a dry soft cloth and then spray a little glass cleaner on the countertop. Again, wipe in a circular motion but use less pressure than you did when cleaning the countertop in step 1. Rub until you get the desired amount of sheen on the surface of your quartz countertop. Now stand back and behold your newly cleaned and shined countertop because you are finished.
Are quartz countertops stain-resistant? Yes, but not stain-proof. So make sure you're cleaning spills off your quartz countertops immediately to prevent stain marks.
