How to Properly Clean Quartz Countertops


1. Routine Cleaning

Although it’s easy to remove regular stains like spilled juice or ketchup from the countertop, routine cleaning of quartz countertops is required. For the same, dish soap is your go-to.

How to do it?

1. Take 2 tablespoons of dish soap in a bowl of water and mix it.

2. Use a nonabrasive sponge or a sponge used for non-stick pans and dip it in the dish wash solution.

3. For harder residue such as bubble gum, nail polish, paint, or food, use a flexible plastic scraper to scrape off the residue without any fear of scratching the countertop.

If some stains remain after the dish wash cleaning, pour some hot water over the stain and let it sit for a while before cleaning it up. This would make the stain dissolve in the water and come off easily.

2. Deep Cleaning

Quartz countertops require deep cleaning only if there are a lot of spills. The longer the stain remains, the harder it is for you to remove it.

With time, grease from food starts to form a thin layer on the top which is not easily removed by dish soap or hot water. Therefore, to make sure that the layer of grease is not formed on the top, turn to the amazing cleaner called vinegar.

Mix 2 parts vinegar with 2 parts water in a spray bottle and generously spray it over the entire top.

Wipe it clean with a soft sponge after letting it sit for a minute.

Wipe it again with clean water.

If you don’t want the smell of vinegar hanging around the room, you can mix some essential oils with it to make the kitchen smell pleasant.

3. Removing Stains:

3.1 Permanent marker

Stains from permanent markers are quite easy to clean on quartz countertops because of their texture. Use Goo Gone on the stain to easily get it off.

Make sure to rinse the top thoroughly with water after using such products on it.

3.2 Cooking grease

If dish soap does not seem to work on cooking grease, there are several products such as Easy-Off which you can turn to. They are degreasers and can loosen the grip of it from the top and help clean it easily.

3.3 Limescale stain

Sometimes, limescale builds upon the surface of the countertop, which requires tough quartz stain remover.

In that case, the steps you could follow are:

a) Test on a small area of the quartz surface at the intended dilution ratio before using it on the surface.

b) Dilute the cleaner using the appropriate mix ratio.

c) Apply diluted cleaner to the quartz surface.

d) Leave the diluted cleaner on the quartz for an appropriate time (from 2-3 minutes to 30 minutes).

e) Rinse thoroughly with water.

Also, quartz countertops come with a guide to maintain them. That is, there are certain dos and don’ts of the same. To make sure that your countertop looks brand new forever, adhere to these tips for maintaining it.
