The kitchen countertop is versatile in its usage. There is so much you can do with the countertop; for instance, you can do your homework, drop your stuff, and more. Therefore, it is essential to keep them neat and clean. Here is a quick guide to help you maintain the shine of the countertop and keep them clean all the time.
1. Wipe it every day: The thumb rule of keeping the countertop clean is to wipe the stains as they appear. In case you have a busy schedule, you can at least wipe it before you go to bed. Simply use a clean rag to get this job done.
2. Baking soda and vinegar: For a tough stain, use baking soda and vinegar but use either of them at a time as their combination can damage the lamination of the countertops. Sprinkle some baking soda on the tough stain. You can also add a spoon of baking soda in 30 ml of water and sprinkle the solution on the stains. Let it rest for five to ten minutes and wipe it with a cloth. Similarly, pour vinegar on tough stains and let it sit for some time and then wipe it off.
3. Dish Washing Liquid: For daily cleaning and wiping, use dishwashing liquid. Pour the solution directly on the stain or mix it with water for easy cleaning.
4. Never Scrub: If you want to ensure the shine and appeal of the countertop. Never scrub its surface, and the damage thus caused may cause additional expenses. The surface of the countertop, once damaged, may require resealing and professional help.
Especially if you want to survive living in a tiny home, then you must at least know how to keep your surroundings clean including your kitchen countertops no matter how small they may be. Your kitchen will shine if you keep the countertops neat and clean. Daily wiping is the right way to keep them fresh throughout the day.
