How to Clean Countertops

Professional domestic cleaners are not the only ones who know the importance of maintaining kitchen countertops clean, sanitised, and hygienic. Start with wiping up the spills. Most of the countertops can be cleaned with an all-purpose product. Do not use abrasive products in order to avoid scratches. Disinfect the countertops with a product designed to sanitise and next make sure to wipe them with a clean damp cloth. In case the countertops are made out of stone, wood, or other natural materials, always make sure to check the manufacturer’s instructions for maintenance first and follow them to prevent a permanent damage. Keep away acidic liquids and food that can leave a permanent stain, or place plastic or paper pads on the shelves to prevent stains and damage if necessary.
