Grease and food stains or even pen marks… no matter what, this is how you can clean your countertops.
Quartzite Countertops, whether in the kitchen or bathroom, are one of the elements of the house with more life. Food is worked on, personal care and grooming exercises are carried out, etc. Therefore, they must always be clean and in perfect condition, as well as being totally hygienic.
Quartzite is characterized by its high hardness and low porosity. Both factors make it easy to clean. Its low porosity is perfect for use in places where water and humidity are frequent. And we are not only talking about the home, but it is also suitable for public buildings and facilities such as gyms, sports centers, spas, locker rooms and showers…
Cleaning of stains caused by food, liquids, acids…
Grease stains: dilute a small amount of detergent in water and rub over the stain with a cloth. Then rinse the quartzite with water.
Water lime stains: the best option is to pour vinegar (or any diluted weak acid) on the surface of the quartzite and let it act for 1 minute. Then rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.
Silicone stains: in these cases, we have to use a blade and a little solvent (ethanol type) to remove the stain.
Marker pen marks: this type of stain can be cleaned with a little alcohol.
Food coloring and fruit stains: Apply bleach diluted in water and clean with a soft cloth.
Dry water stains: Use warm water and vinegar, leaving a few minutes to soften the stain in the quartzite. Then rub gently with a cloth until it disappears, rinse with water and dry.
In general terms, to prevent your quartzite marble from absorbing liquids or deteriorating over time you must be careful and prevent some risk situations. Try to clean after use and in case of spilling any liquid, act immediately. Depending on the type of stain, we must assess which method to use for cleaning and, above all, avoid using too abrasive components.
