The thought of cleaning kitchen countertops seems like a reasonably straightforward process, but it depends on the material.

The thought of cleaning kitchen countertops seems like a reasonably straightforward process. However, different surfaces require particular care. For example, if you own a granite kitchen island, you don’t want to go heavy on the bleach. When you keep your kitchen countertops clutter-free, this effort will help your kitchen look more organized. Better yet, the fewer germs that exist, the better. It doesn’t take much to dirty up a kitchen, and we’re here to serve as a reminder that a sanitized kitchen makes for a cleaner home overall. Here is how to approach cleaning your kitchen countertops. 

Do Not Use Acidic Cleaners on Natural Stone Kitchen Countertops

Understandably, many homeowners don’t want to use too many cleaning products. Simplicity makes life more convenient, but what isn’t a convenience is a kitchen countertop that’s not as durable as it used to be. We recommend that you not use vinegar or any acidic cleaning products on natural stones such as granite, marble, or quartzite. The wrong cleaner can dull a natural stone countertop surface over time. Also, many all-purpose cleaners contain citric acid! Therefore, it’s always best to be careful and check the label. 

Seal Your Kitchen Countertops Regularly, if Necessary 

If you own a quartz countertop, you won’t have to seal it because it’s a nonporous engineered material. However, natural stone countertops are porous. Therefore, they will require sealing to protect them from water damage and stains. Do this maintenance task at least once a year. If you’re not sure how long it’s been, pour water on your countertop. If the water beads up, sealing isn’t a requirement. If the water seeps into the countertop, then it’s time. 

Always Wipe up Spills ASAP

When you don’t wipe up spills and ensure that your countertop is dry, it can leave behind unsightly smudges and streaks. We highly recommend microfiber cloths because they pick up more moisture, dust, and dirt than traditional cloths. 

Take Everything off the Counter

From paper towel holders to fruit trays to decorative pieces and appliances, kitchen countertops can house a lot of items. It would be best for you to remove these items and clean them. No telling how many germs are underneath these items.
