When you invest in Caesarstone kitchen benchtops, we know you want to get the most out of this fantastic addition to your kitchen space. Not only are they aesthetically appealing, but they also give you the convenience of preparing meals without worrying too much about mess. You’ll be pleased to know Caesarstone benchtops only require a little TLC to keep them looking their best. Read on to learn what you can do to maintain the quality and durability of your benchtop.
Go gentle on the scrubbing
As Caesarstone benchtops are sturdy, nonporous and resistant to stains, you won’t need to worry about scrubbing dirt and scratches away. A simple daily wipe with a damp cloth and soapy water or mild detergent is all you’ll really need to do to keep your benchtop looking like new. Follow this up by drying your benchtop with a soft cloth or paper towel and wiping it using broad circles to buff it to a quality shine. You won’t need to worry about polishing your benchtop, as Caesarstone products keep their outstanding surface on their own.
Be mindful of your cleaner
A non-abrasive household cleaner, such as a smooth cream or light bleach, is perfect for removing water stains, coffee rings and finger marks from granite, marble and stone. Even though Caesarstone benchtops are known to be tough, they can be damaged by strong cleaning chemicals. Caesarstone also stocks its own cleaning products, which are designed to remove stains and keep your benchtop looking great. Simply apply the cleanser to your sponge or cloth, wipe the surface and dry it with a paper towel. There are also plenty of environmentally-friendly products on the market which don’t just remove stains but also do their bit for the planet.
Take care of stubborn stains
You might worry that problematic spills of soy sauce, oil, red wine, food colouring, ink, makeup and more might damage your benchtop beyond repair, but this isn’t the case for Caesarstone. All you need to use is a non-abrasive sponge, soaked in a cleanser and oxalic acid. After you clean the stain, simply rinse and wipe the surface. Tougher stains can be removed with rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth, or a little bleach on light-coloured areas.
For dry, sticky marks, scrape the stain off with a blunt knife and wipe the surface down. If you’ve spilt nail polish, nail polish remover followed by a clean and dry is all you need to remove the stain. For hard deposits, a mild degreaser can help lift the stain before you finish the job with a thorough wipe and dry.
