Laminate Countertops For laminate countertops, you're going to want to stay away from any products with acid or alkali, as well as scouring pads and iron wool. A simple, mild liquid detergent with a cloth and water is all you need.
Regular cleaning is the best way to keep your wood countertops in pristine condition. Feel free to use a non-abrasive cleaner or a homemade mix of warm water and white vinegar (take a look at natural, homemade cleaners, here).
Stains can be removed by sprinkling salt on the stain, and using half a lemon to rub in the salt. Wipe clean with your water/vinegar mixture.
Stainless Steel Countertops
Stainless steel counters are very easy to clean, and just require a cloth, soap and water. Keep in mind that scratches can still occur. Wipe these stained/scratched areas with a microfiber cloth and a specific stainless steel cleaner.
Marble & Granite Countertops
Make sure to avoid any acidic or abrasive cleaners, as they will strip and ruin your counters. The best way to clean marble and granite is by using warm water and mild dish soap, with your Norwex microfiber cloth to give your counter some extra shine!
Quartz & Engineered Stone Countertops
If you have these beautiful countertops, first of all, I'm so jealous! Lucky for you, cleaning engineered stone is super easy. All you need is mild soap and water. Also, these countertops are naturally stain resistant!
