The Best Cleaner for Marble Countertops
Cleaning and wiping surfaces down regularly can keep things spotless, but you need to make sure you’re using the right product to reduce the risk of damage. Typically, the best cleaner for marble countertops are the ones that are specially formulated for marble. If you don’t have any specially formulated cleansers for your marble countertops on hand, you can use mild soap and water to wipe down surfaces.
With other cleaners, you could expose your countertops to harsh, acidic ingredients that can reduce the integrity of the protective sealant and eventually deteriorate your countertops. Some ingredients you need to keep away from your marble countertops include:
- Lemon juice
How to Clean Marble Countertops
In addition to using the right products, here are a few tips that can help keep your marble countertops clean and shiny for years to come.
- Act Quick to Prevent Stains – Spills are normal in any kitchen, but it can lead to staining. If you accidentally spill something on your marble countertops, you’ll want to wipe up the mess as fast as possible; this will help to prevent substances from absorbing into your porous marble countertop surface.
- Protect Countertops from Scratches and Etching – Marble is quite durable, but etches and scratches can still occur. To prevent these issues, it’s best to use coasters and placemats if you need to place anything down on your countertops.
- Get Your Marble Countertops Sealed – Marble countertops should be sealed upon installation and every year after. Routine sealings provide surfaces with a layer of protection that helps you keep your countertops clean, and stain- and etch-free.
