Top 5 Quartz Cleaning Hacks for Keeping Your Countertops Sparkling

Quartz Cleaning Hacks

Quartz countertops have soared in popularity in recent years, thanks to their durability, beauty, and low maintenance.

However, like any surface in your home, quartz needs proper care to maintain its sparkling appearance. With the right cleaning hacks, you can keep your quartz countertops looking perfectly clean for years to come.

Here are Capitol Granite’s top five quartz cleaning hacks to help you maintain beautifully clean quartz countertops.

1. Gentle Daily Cleaning

Regular maintenance is key to preserving the luster of your quartz countertops. Fortunately, keeping them clean on a daily basis doesn’t require harsh chemicals or elaborate cleaning routines.

Simply wipe down the surface with a soft cloth or sponge dipped in warm, soapy water. Mild dish soap works wonders for removing everyday spills and stains without damaging the quartz surface.

Avoid abrasive cleaners or scouring pads, as they can scratch the surface and dull its shine over time.

2. Vinegar and Water Solution

Quartz countertops are non-permeable, so they are highly resistant to bacteria and easy to disinfect.

You can use commercial cleaners like Clorox, or you can make a homemade solution of equal parts white vinegar and water. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant and degreaser, making it an effective cleaner for quartz countertops.

However, be sure to rinse the surface thoroughly with water after cleaning to remove any lingering vinegar residue.

3. Baking Soda Paste

Baking soda is another versatile cleaning agent that can help lift stains and grime from quartz countertops.

To make a baking soda paste, simply mix baking soda with water until it forms a thick, spreadable consistency. Apply the paste to the stained areas and let it sit for 10-15 minutes to penetrate the dirt.

Then, use a soft-bristled brush or sponge to gently scrub the surface in circular motions. The mild abrasiveness of baking soda helps to lift stains without scratching the quartz surface.

Once the stains are removed, rinse the countertop with water and dry it thoroughly to prevent water spots.

4. Rubbing Alcohol for Grease

Grease and oil stains can be particularly challenging to remove from quartz countertops. Fortunately, rubbing alcohol can help cut through the grease and restore the shine to your quartz surface.

Simply dampen a soft cloth or sponge with rubbing alcohol and gently wipe the stained areas. The alcohol will dissolve the grease and evaporate quickly, leaving your countertops clean and streak-free.

For stubborn grease stains, you may need to repeat the process or use a slightly higher concentration of rubbing alcohol.

Because quartz is an engineered stone, you don’t have to worry about dulling its luster with cleaning solutions; it will not be damaged by cleaners!

5. Microfiber Cloth for Buffing

After cleaning your quartz countertops, give them a final polish with a microfiber cloth to achieve a streak-free shine.

Microfiber cloths are soft and non-abrasive, making them ideal for buffing quartz surfaces without leaving behind lint or scratches.

Buffing with a microfiber cloth can make the difference between a clean countertop and a gleaming countertop. Simply use the cloth to wipe down the countertops in circular motions until they shine.

With these five simple cleaning hacks, you can keep your quartz countertops looking sparkling clean and inviting.

By incorporating these simple cleaning techniques into your regular maintenance routine, you can enjoy the timeless elegance of quartz countertops for years to come.
