FAQs

What is the best cleaner for quartz countertops?

The best cleaners for quartz countertops are generally going to be gentle, all-purpose cleaners made from natural ingredients. Cleaners made from plant-based ingredients or mild dish detergents are ideal for quartz countertops.


To clean your quartz with a DIY cleaning solution, fill a reusable spray bottle with a cup of water and a couple drops of mild dish soap. Spray it on your counters and grab a microfiber cleaning cloth (these are our favorites) to give ‘em a good wipe down, paying a lil’ extra attention to any super dirty spots. Allow the countertops to dry, and voila! Clean, glistening quartz that’s ready for whatever yummy ideas you’ve got next.


Got more stuff that could use a good cleaning? We’ve got plenty of guides to give everything in your kitchen a much-needed refresh. Stainless steel appliances? Done. Your beloved Instant Pot? We’re on it. The cast iron skillet that’s been in your family for 50 years? Check!


What should you not use on quartz countertops?

Quartz countertops are a tad finicky when it comes to cleaning products, but their beauty and durability definitely make up for it. When you choose a quartz cleaner for your counters, stay away from vinegar. The pH of vinegar is too acidic, and can strip your quartz counters of their protective surface.


Bleach is another product that shouldn’t be used when cleaning quartz countertops because it’s highly alkaline. It can permanently damage the surface of your counters or cause discoloration that’s impossible to remove.


If you’re concerned about disinfecting your quartz, add four tablespoons of isopropyl rubbing alcohol to your spray bottle filled with water and dish soap. The alcohol will disinfect your countertops without stripping or permanently disfiguring them.


What cleans stains off quartz countertops?

So you’ve got stains, gunk, or other unsightly stuff hanging around on your quartz? No worries! Use a razor blade and very gently scrape off any chunky bits from the counter. For hardened-on residue and stubborn stains, take a bottle of isopropyl alcohol and pour it, undiluted, into a clean cloth. Rub the stained area for 15 seconds, then immediately wash the area with a quartz countertop cleaner or your DIY dish soap spray.
