8 Tips to Clean White Quartz Countertops
Quartz is the first option for many homeowners because it is very easy to maintain. It has a smooth and silk surface which makes the cleaning effortless. With that being said, some liquids or build-up can be tougher to remove than others and it is when these tips can come in helpful.
1. Day to day cleaning
Having white surfaces is no longer a problem with quartz because it is highly resistant to staining. However, all build-up, spills and dust are more visible on white than other colours. Daily cleaning will make your countertops always looking like new, but also highly hygienic. It is best to use a mixture of soap and water for day to day cleaning.
2. Use the glass cleaner
Glass cleaner is one of the solutions you can use for deeper cleaning. Once a week spray your surfaces with the glass cleaner and rub them with a soft cloth. This will make your countertops extra clean and shiny.
3. Use vinegar solution
Another solution you can use for a deeper cleaning is a homemade vinegar-water solution. Use equal parts of vinegar and water and wipe your surfaces with it. This solution will also disinfect your surfaces.
4. Avoid bleach
Avoid cleaning solutions that contain bleach. Bleach can make discolourations and make your white quartz dull. Bleach is often found in toilet bowl cleaners, so you should avoid them.
5. Avoid ammonia
Ammonia is another ingredient that is not suitable for quartz and can lead to discolourations. A lot of household cleaning products contain ammonia, among them are almost all multi-purpose cleaners and oven cleaners. You should avoid them and simply use soap and water.
6. Use rubbing alcohol
Rubbing alcohol is great at removing stains from markers, nail polish, make-up and similar products. Just pour a bit of rubbing alcohol onto the cotton pad and wipe the affected spot with it. You can also use rubbing alcohol to disinfect your countertops.
7. Use soft materials
