Euclase Stone® is a tough, non-porous, chemically resistant, high-performance surface that elevates residential kitchen aesthetics with the natural beauty of quartz.
Suggestions on how to maintain and keep your quartz lasting.
Cleaning quartz countertops doesn’t need to take a lot of work. Clean your countertops with a soft, warm, soapy cloth or sponge, similar to something that you would wash dishes with. Clean spills up soon after they happen, and you will save yourself a lot of elbow grease. If something is really stuck on the surface, use a dough card or something flat and plastic that won’t hurt the surface of the granite. If necessary, dry with a microfiber cloth, cloth diaper or an old cotton shirt rag. If you are still battling streaks, you can finish off with a spray of glass cleaner.
Avoid cleaners with acid. This would include any cleaner with lemon, ammonia, or bleach. Also, try to minimize contact between your quartz countertops and foods containing acid such as lemons, soda, tomatoes, etc.
How to Clean Quartz Countertops — Routine Care
Just Use Water and a Paper Towel
With simple, care, Euclase Stone® quartz surface will retain its radiant, lustrous appearance for many years. For routine cleaning, simply wipe down your countertop with a damp cloth or paper towel and, if necessary, a small amount of non-bleach, non-abrasive cleanser.
Clean Up Spills Right Away — Before They Can Dry
Even though Euclase Stone® resists permanent staining when exposed to liquids (such as wine, vinegar, tea, lemon juice and soda) or fruits and vegetables, you’ll want to wipe up food and liquid spills as soon as possible.
For stubborn or dried spills, use a nonabrasive cleaning pad such as a white 3M Scotch-Brite®* scrub pad coupled with Formula 409® Glass & Surface Cleaner** or a comparable cleaning product.
How to Clean Quartz Countertops — What Not to Use
No Wax or Polish Necessary
Because it is non-porous, Euclase Stone® quartz surface does not require sealants or waxes. Euclase Stone® keeps its lustrous gloss and ultra-smooth surface without polishing.
Do Not Use Bleach
Avoid using cleansers that contain bleach. Always follow the cleaner manufacturer’s use instructions and exercise proper care when handling and storing any cleaning products.
Avoid High-pH Cleaners
While casual exposure to alkaline materials will not damage Euclase Stone® quartz surfaces, highly alkaline (high-pH) cleansers are not recommended.
Heat Damage Prevention
To maintain the beauty of Euclase Stone®, do not place hot skillets or roasting pans directly onto the surface. We recommends the use of trivets and hot pads.
Dealing with More Difficult Spills and Materials
Materials that harden as they dry (such as gum, food, grease, nail polish or paint) are especially tenacious. Remove these by gently scraping away the excess with a plastic putty knife.
Keep permanent markers and inks away from your quartz countertops. Should these agents come into contact with
