Quartz is a wonderful low maintenance countertop so the upkeep on it is minimal, making it an appealing choice for your new bathroom or kitchen. For daily cleaning, a simple water and soap combination will suffice. Mix water with a couple of drops of dish soap and wipe your quartz countertops clean. When finished, rinse the countertops with water for a clean countertop that glistens.
To prevent stains, you will want to clean any spills up right away. This is especially true if the spill is wine, lemon juice, or other harsh substance that could leave a strong stain or erode at the surface of the quartz. If a stain has settled into the countertop, try a scrub pad with an all-purpose cleaner and gently scrub away the stain. On the topic of things to avoid, make sure you don’t use any bleach cleaners or high-pH cleaners on the surface of your new quartz countertops. The great thing about quartz? It is considered non-porous so stains are rarely an issue.
General maintenance also includes not placing hot objects directly on the surface of the countertops. You should also make sure to always use a cutting board when cutting anything. While quartz is one of the strongest materials you can buy for countertops, it is always best to take preventative measures and not place either of these on your beautiful new countertops.
A few safe cleaners for your quartz countertops include:
• 3M Glass Cleaner
• Goo Gone
• Clorox Anywhere (Hard Surfaces)

• The company you purchase your countertops through will have more recommendations or may offer their own cleaner for sale as well.
