The best tool you have at your disposal to help keep your countertops clean is cleaning. When it is kitchen countertops or bathroom countertops, they should all be cleaned on a regular basis. Even if they don’t necessarily look dirty, they can still gather an undetectable layer of dirt that could be causing microdamage the longer that it is left there.

But the issue is that not all countertops can be cleaned the same way. That’s why we have supplied this helpful guide on how to properly clean the most popular countertop types.

Cleaning Granite

The biggest thing to know about granite countertop cleaning is that you should never use vinegar, bleach, or Windex on them. Instead, use a mixture of warm water and soap to wipe down the counter and then move onto a half-and-half solution of water and isopropyl alcohol to make sure it is completely clean.

Cleaning Marble

This is perhaps one of the easiest types of kitchen countertops to clean. The only thing that marble requires is frequent wiping down with a mixture of warm water and non-abrasive dish soap. Then you need to make sure that you take a cloth that is damp with just water are wipe the countertop until no soap is left on it.

Cleaning Quartz

Quartz countertop cleaning is very similar to that of marble countertops. The only added step is using a degreaser to help get rid of any grease residue.

Cleaning Laminate

Laminate bathroom countertops can take quite a bit of abuse but only need very mild cleaning done. Once again, just mix some soap and warm water and then wipe down with a microfiber cloth to get it nice and clean.
