CLEANING QUARTZ WORKTOPS
Maintaining worktops and kitchen countertops can be laborious. However, cleaning your quartz worktops doesn’t have to be a chore. In fact, it can be far less work than you initially thought. Simply use a damp microfibre cloth with warm soapy water to clean up any initial spills. This will help prevent any spills or dirt from being absorbed into the stone. Avoid using any highly acidic or bleach-based cleaning products as these can often damage the stone surface.
REMOVING STUBBORN STAINS
If any stubborn stains do occur, you can mix together your own quartz cleaning solution by mixing together isopropyl alcohol and dish detergent. Mix together a 50:50 solution of water and 91% isopropyl alcohol into a spray bottle. Spray onto the stone surface and allow to sit for 5 minutes, then rinse with water and wipe down with a clean microfibre cloth. This will remove excess soapy water and periodically disinfect your quartz worktops, restoring their natural shine.
AVOID HEAT AND SCRATCHING
Unlike other natural stones such as granite, quartz stone is not completely heat resistant and can crack or chip if exposed to heat for long periods of time. To avoid this use special trivets, or placemats when placing hot pots and pans onto the surface. Also, whilst quartz worktops are highly scratch resistant we would recommend using cutting boards as an extra precaution when preparing food on your worktops.
