After purchasing your very own high-quality quartz worktops, of course you don’t want to damage them by merely doing something you do a lot of times in the kitchen— which is routine cleaning.
Cleaning your quartz worktops doesn’t need to take a lot of time and effort. Using a soft cloth, or perhaps a sponge; simply wipe your worktops with warm water mixed with some non-abrasive soap. You can even use a similar material that you would normally wash your dishes with (as long as they’re not harsh)
Remember to clean spills as soon as they happen, so you would save yourself a lot of elbow grease. Some stubborn stains would really stick on the surface, but don’t worry when this happens; just use something flat and plastic that won’t easily damage the surface. If necessary, dry with a microfibre cloth or even an old cotton shirt rag. If streaks are still visible on the surface, you can always wipe them off with a spray of glass cleaner.
However, if you still need something a little tougher than the usual soap and water, you can make your own worktop cleaner by means of mixing dish detergent and some rubbing alcohol. Mix one part rubbing alcohol with three parts of dish detergent, then mix carefully in warm water.
It is important to avoid cleaners with acid content such as any cleaners with ammonia, lemon, and bleach. Likewise, try to reduce contact between your quartz worktops and various food and drinks that contains acid such as tomatoes, lemons, soda, and more.
