Taking Care Of Your Kitchen Countertops

 In blog

Marble countertops. Granite countertops. Wooden countertops. You could walk into 10 different kitchens across Colorado and see different countertops each time, with more and more different options present based on preferences and aesthetics. While you may consider your oven to be the kitchen centerpiece, it’s often the countertop that does a lot of the work, where you prep your food, lay out groceries, and probably have more than your fair share of spills. This is why countertop maintenance is one of the most important things you can focus on when it comes to running your kitchen.

Countertop Care

Countertop CarePart of the issue when it comes to taking care of a countertop is that this versatility you’ve been enjoying may actually work against you. All the different types out there often require their own specific technique in order to properly be cleaned. We’ll cover a few standouts.

For example, marble is one of the most delicate of the countertop options out there, but you can clean without any risk of scratches or etches with basic household tools like a spray bottle, warm water, non-abrasive dish soap, and some towels. What you want to skip out on are more acidic cleaners like lemon juice and vinegar.

Laminate countertops are great because you can mimic the appearance of a marble or a granite with a lot more durability. For these, you can basically clean them any way you want, whether you’re looking for a top-brand cleaner or homemade mixture.
