How to Clean Quartz Shower Walls with a Simple Mixture of Mild Soap and Water

Quartz shower walls and countertops are heat resistant and won't stain easily, making them a popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms. But like any quartz surface, they need to be cleaned regularly to stay looking their best.

The good news is that quartz surfaces are easy to care for, and a simple mixture of mild soap and warm water is all you need to keep your countertops sparkling clean. Just wet a sponge or cloth with the soap solution and wipe down the surface.
For tougher stains, you can use a soft-bristled brush, but be sure not to scrub too hard or you may damage the finish.

 Once you've cleaned the counters, rinse with clear water and dry with a soft cloth.

With just a little bit of effort, you can keep your quartz counters looking like new for years to come.

How to Get Rid of Hard Water Stains on Quartz Shower Walls and Countertops

There's nothing worse than coming home to find your once-pristine quartz shower wall or countertop marred by ugly hard water stains. But thankfully, there are a few simple steps you can take to remove these unsightly blemishes and restore your countertop to its original beauty.

First, clean spills immediately if you can, if not, when cleaning quartz countertops, mix equal parts vinegar and water in a bowl. Then, dampen a clean cloth in the mixture and use it to scrub the stained area. Be sure to scrub gently, as quartz is a relatively soft material and can be easily scratched.

If the stain persists, you can try using a mild abrasive cleaner like baking soda. Just make a paste of baking soda and water and apply it to the stain with a soft cloth. Let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse it away with warm water. With a little elbow grease, those hard water stains will be gone in no time!

You can always use soft wire wool (steel wool) to gently rub any residue that is on the surface, sometimes this is all you need to remove hard water stains from most quartz countertops.

How to Remove Scratches from Quartz Shower Walls and Countertops

If you have quartz countertops, you know how durable and beautiful they are. But even the toughest surfaces can show signs of wear and tear over time. One common issue is scratches. Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to remove scratches and keep your countertops looking like new.

If the scratch is shallow, you can try using a soft cloth and a little elbow grease. Gently rub the area in a circular motion until the scratch disappears. If that doesn't work, you can try using a mild abrasive, such as baking soda. Again, rub in a circular motion until the scratch has disappeared.
For deeper scratches, you may need to use a stronger abrasive, such as sandpaper. In all honesty, we wouldn't recommend that you go down this route. If the scratches are deep, it's best to call a natural stone professional in your area, who will have the tools necessary to remove deeper scratches and stubborn stains.

Once the scratch is gone, be sure to protect your countertops by using placemats a cutting board and trivets. With a little care, your quartz countertops will look beautiful for years to come.

How to Polish Quartz Shower Walls and Countertops for a Streak-Free Finish

Quartz countertops are a beautiful and durable option for the kitchen, but they can require a bit of care to keep them looking their best.
Fortunately, polishing quartz countertops is a relatively simple process that can be done with supplies that are probably already in your home.

Start by wiping down the counters with a damp cloth to remove any dust or debris. Then, apply a small amount of liquid dish soap to a clean microfiber cloth and use it to scrub the counters in a circular motion.
Rinse the soap away with warm water and dry the counters with a soft towel. For tougher stains, you may need to use a quartz-safe cleaner or polish.

Be sure to read the instructions carefully before using any new products on your countertops. With a little elbow grease and the right supplies, you can keep your quartz countertops looking streak-free and like new.

How to Seal Quartz Countertops to Protect Them from Staining and Scratching

Quartz is a beautiful, durable material that is perfect for countertops. However, like all materials, it is not immune to staining and scratching.

To help protect your quartz countertop, it is important to seal it regularly. Sealing helps to create a barrier between the countertop and spills, preventing the Quartz from becoming stained. 
In addition, it helps to fill in any small scratches or chips, giving the countertop a smooth, even surface.

Sealing is a simple process that only takes a few minutes, and it can help to keep your quartz countertop looking like new for years to come.

Can You Use Wet Wipes or Glass Cleaner on Quartz Countertops?

Nowadays, most wet wipes don't contain bleach. You can use them for heavy-duty cleaning every once in a while, but they aren't the best option.

Citric acid is found in wet wipes and can be very harsh on quartz countertops, so avoid using them daily or often to prevent long-term discolouration.

Because glass cleaners have a high pH level, they could potentially damage quartz. While some glass cleaner companies claim that their product is safe to use on quartz in small quantities, others disagree.

If you want to play it safe and clean your Quartz the right way, ditch the glass cleaner altogether and go for a milder option like dish soap instead.
Always use this cleaner with caution.
Some spray bottle glass cleaning solutions have ammonia, which can be extremely dangerous when mixed with bleach—such as sodium hypochlorite.

The combination of these two chemicals creates chloramine vapour and poisonous fumes that could irritate or even burn your eyes, nose, throat, and airway. In high enough concentrations, it could even lead to death.

Stay Away From Harsh Cleaners using highly alkaline or acidic cleaners will hurt your quartz counters. Abrasive cleaners can do more harm than good.
