How to Clean Quartz Countertops

Homeowners choose quartz countertops for many reasons; their beauty, the fact that they harbor fewer bacteria because they’re nearly non-porous, and ease of cleaning. You may have these gorgeous countertops in your kitchen, bathroom, or both, and you want to keep them sparkling like new. From streaks and fingerprints to stains, we’ll show you how to clean quartz countertops so that you can enjoy their beauty for years to come!

First, always be sure to wipe up any spills right away. Juice, jelly, mustard, ketchup — anything that spills and sits for a while will be harder to remove and may leave a stain. You can avoid this by simply wiping it up immediately with a soft rag.

How to Clean Quartz Countertops Daily

This type of countertop really doesn’t require any special cleaning if you take care of it daily, which is easy and takes just a few minutes of your time:

  • Remove any hardened food or liquid using a rubber spatula, credit card, etc. You want to avoid using anything that could scratch the surface. Gently wiping the area with a soft rag and warm water first may help loosen the hardened spill, making it easier to remove.
  • For daily cleaning, all it takes is a soft rag (we prefer microfiber) with a dab of dish soap and warm water. Wipe down the countertops to remove food residue, grease, crumbs, and other debris.
  • If any streaks or smudges remain, spray the surface with window cleaner and wipe away with a soft rag or microfiber cloth. Your quartz countertops will sparkle!

One note of caution: Never use bleach or other harsh chemicals on your polished countertops and avoid abrasive cleaners or sponges. Anything that’s rough or gritty could dull the finish.

Cleaning quartz countertops is simple and doesn’t require a lot of your time or effort. Make it part of your daily routine, and you won’t have to give your gorgeous quartz countertops a second thought.
