Making sure you clean your kitchen worktops can be slightly stressful, particularly if you’ve no idea where to start when thinking about products. However there is not much to be worried about! Cleaning countertops and worktops is actually quite easy; once you’ve figured out the right ingredients for it all.
It is better not to use your standard chemical cleaners for natural stone, as the acid can wear away at the stone over time. A mix of vinegar and baking soda for tough stains and 50/50 vinegar and water in a spray bottle left for a few minutes will deal with the smaller stains. Wipe down with a warm, clean rag.
A cheaper alternative to authentic worktops, laminate will scratch easily if not handled properly so try to avoid a hard scrubbing brush. Using a gentle countertop spray, a mixture of ¾ water to ¼ bleach or even 50/50 vinegar and water in a simple spray bottle will do wonders. Simply leave it on for about ten minutes and then gently wipe down with a soft sponge.
Authentic wooden worktops will need oiling every 6-12 months. Simply wipe them down as you would when using a normal cleaner and they will last far longer. When cleaning the worktops, a simple batch of warm soapy water will often do the trick, just remember to dry the worktops immediately afterwards.
