How remove stains from quartz countertop?

Quartz countertops are known for their durability and beauty, but sometimes they can develop stains that mar their appearance. Don’t worry, though – there are effective methods for removing stains from quartz.

Unlike some natural stone surfaces, Polarstone Quartz Countertop is non-porous, and does not require oiling and maintenance. It remains stain resistant to wine and other spills for its lifetime.

Basic day-to-day wear

For basic day-to-day wear, we advise using lukewarm water on a paper towel (or clean soft cloth) and a small amount of a gentle soap or detergent to clean your countertops.

Vigorous Cleaning

If more vigorous cleaning is needed, use a non-abrasive / non-bleach household cleaner. Then rinse with lukewarm water and dry right away with a clean soft cloth, microfiber cloth, or paper towel. 

Stubborn Debris

Should you need to remove stubborn debris or adhesives such as tape, nail polish or sticky foods, be sure to scrape excess substances from the surfaces—a plastic putty knife is ideal for gently removing common adhesives. Once removed, use soap and water or a non-abrasive cleaner to wipe away any residuals. For liquid spills or rings, be sure to dry the surface thoroughly before cleaning.

Wipe Spills Right Away

Polarstone Quartz Countertop has been formulated to resist permanent stains. When exposed to the myriad of liquids, spices, and other “staining agents” commonly used. However, we recommend you wipe clean (as per above) any liquid or food spills right away.

Quartz Care and Maintenance cleaning products commonly used for Polarstone Surfaces:

Windex® Multi-Surface Cleaner Lysol® products Formula 409® Glass and Surface Cleaner Simple Green® (lime-scale remover)

Recommended Disinfectants

Always use gentle cleaning methods and products specifically formulated for quartz.

Polarstone surfaces are considered non-porous. However, if you desire to disinfect your countertops, we recommend any of the following disinfectants which are compliant with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines:

Lysol® Disinfectant Spray.* 70% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol.*

*Please Note: If taking the extra-step to disinfect as we recommend, please be sure to use lukewarm water and a paper towel to remove any disinfectant residual.

The Don’ts

It’s important to note that harsh chemicals, abrasive cleaners, abrasive sponge, and scrub brushes should be avoided, as they can damage the surface of quartz countertops.

Please make sure to avoid using high alkaline cleaners, harsh chemicals, or solvents.

By following these guidelines and investing some care, you can easily remove stains and keep your quartz countertops looking luxurious and pristine.

Low Maintenance Quartz Countertop

To preserve the stone surface and maintain its original luster, regular cleaning is essential. Use a few drops of a neutral cleaner or a mild washing-up liquid for optimal results. Gently wipe the surface with a cloth dipped in warm water to prevent any potential scratching. After cleaning, thoroughly rinse with water and ensure the surface is dried for a pristine finish.

With some basic care for quartz countertop, your Polarstone surface will look fresh, clean, and polished—as beautiful as the day they were installed.
