Quartz has been known as the material that is highly resistant to stains. That is due to its non-porous surface, which prevents liquids and spills from leaving a stain. However, when quartz is exposed to hard water, if that water is not wiped off, it can leave mineral deposits. Here, we are bringing the 5 tips on how to remove water stains from your quartz countertops.
1. Use steel wood
If you have a mineral buildup from hard water, use steel wool to remove it. Use light handed circular motions for the whole countertops, even if they don’t have visible stains. Follow up with using a dry cloth to wipe off the loosened buildup.
2. Baking soda
Another way to remove water stains is to mix the baking soda and water. Pour a bit of this home-made cleaner on the stain, then rub it in with kitchen sponge with circular motions. This method will help to remove stains from glasses and cooking.
3. Use plastic wrap
If the first two methods do not remove the stain, you can try this trick. Pour a bit of the baking soda-water mixture on the stain. Cover it with a plastic wrap and let it sit for a few hours. This will create the heat that will pull out the stain out of your quartz countertops.
4. Use a specialized cleaner
There are also quartz cleaning kits on the markets that are exactly created to remove the stains from hard water. They can be effective if none of the above methods helps.
5. Wipe the spills and glass rings at the earliest opportunity
Distilled water will not leave a stain, because what leaves stain or quartz are actually minerals that water contain. If you want to prevent water stains, you can use distilled water when doing the routine cleaning. Another way to prevent the water stains is to wipe off the spills and glass rings with a dry cloth.
Following these simple steps for removing the water stains will make your quartz countertops even more shiny and beautiful. Quartz is highly resistant to stains, but it is not stain-proof; the key to leaving your quartz countertops clean and without stains is to remove the spills as quickly as possible. If not, these tricks can help you to bring back its beauty.
