So you now have a beutiful countertop. It was scratched and etched and now it is looking as good as the day it was installed. Here are a couple quick care tips that will help you keep the counters looking great.
1. Wipe up spills as quickley as possible. Allowing spills and moisture to sit on the surface will allow a build up a residue over time that will diminish the finish.
2. Use a neutral stone cleaner for regualr cleanings. I prefere a product called EasyOxy availableat www.easystonecare.com.
3. When you clean spray a fine mist of cleaner onto the surface then wipe the solution from the counter with a microfiber rag. Then use a clean microfiber to hand buff any streaking left by the cleaner. Those streaks can cuase a sticky builup over time.
4. Never clean with abrasive pads, especially if you ahve marble counters, because these pads can scratch the surface. If food is left to dry and is hard to remove from the surface wet a paper towel with EasyOxy and let it sit on the dry stuck food for 15minutes. The moisture should soften the food deposit making it easier to remove.
