Kitchen Worktops

kitchen worktopsFirstly when it comes to cleaning and maintaining kitchen worktops the very first thing to do is to move surface appliances such as sugar and coffee containers, fruit bowls etc. and wash the areas where they have been standing with even the smallest scrap of food or liquid left you will find this a magnet for insets or pests, so don’t leave crumbs or food debris, liquids from juices scattered across the worktops.

Ceramic tiles

Clean dirty grout with a small brush such as an old toothbrush and a solution made of one part bleach to four parts water. Wipe over with a damp cloth and allow to dry.


Natural solid surfaces (such as granite), laminates and man-made solid surfaces

Use an all- purpose cleaner with added disinfectant or wipe down with hot, soapy water. Dry immediately using a clean cloth, kitchen roll or paper towels. Use a cream cleaner to remove any stubborn stains or a paste made of bicarbonate of soda and water. On textured surfaces, use a nylon bristle brush to get into the grain.


Stainless steel

Mostly found in commercial kitchens as kitchen worktops it also applies to domestic appliances such as sinks and taps. Isn’t it very annoying that when everything else is spotless you are left with fingermarks on stainless steel surfaces, a great tip is to put a dab of cooking or baby oil on a clean cloth and rub the whole surface, concentrating on marked areas. For thorough cleaning, wash stainless steel with a solution of washing-up liquid and buff dry with a soft cloth.



Wood being a natural product should be treated as other natural surfaces. Check your  kitchen worktops every three months or so to keep them stain-and water-resistant.
