How to CLEAN Engineer Quartz Surfaces?
SOONER IS BETTER
Quartz will resist permanent staining when exposed to liquids like wine, vinegar, tea, lemon juice, and soda, or fruits and vegetables, it's important to wipe up spills immediately - before they have a chance to dry. Take care of fresh messes with mild dishwashing detergent and a soft cloth. For dried spills or heavy stains, your best bet is a glass or surface cleaner, a nonabrasive sponge (sponges designed for nonstick pans are safe and effective), and a little elbow grease. Keep a plastic putty knife handy to gently scrape off gum, food, nail polish, paint, or other messes that harden as they dry.

How to MAITAIN and CARE Engineer Quartz Surface?
Living with Quartz countertops requires little to no upkeep or maintenance. Quartz is a man-made engineered stone and has a non-porous surface making it impervious to most stains and scratches. However, Quartz is NOT heat resistant so be sure to use trivets, hot pads and towels to protect the surface from hot pans. There are no sealers or protectors that need to be applied over the life of your countertop so quartz is considered to be easier to maintain than granite.
