Caesarstone surfaces consist of 93% natural quartz, which has outstanding properties to ensure ease of maintenance and longevity.
Our surfaces are non-porous and highly resistant to stains so it takes very little effort to keep your Caesarstone looking like new at all times.
Normal routine cleaning with a damp white cloth and warm soapy water or mild detergent is all you need to maintain your Caesarstone in top shape. Thoroughly rinse off the soap/mild detergent with water after use and dry with a soft cloth or paper towel. We recommend a thorough cleaning of your Caesarstone surface on a weekly basis.
Caesarstone can withstand exposures to substances such as tea, coffee, red wine, oil, vinegar, curry, lemon juice etc. These stubborn stains can be effortlessly cleaned up with some simple steps:
1. Caesarstone Cream Cleanser or CIF: Pour a small amount of Caesarstone Cream Cleanser or CIF onto the stain and mix with a little water. Simply clean in a gentle and small circular motion with a wet cloth or non-abrasive sponge (soaked in water) until the stain is removed. Rinse off the cleaning product and dry with a soft cloth or paper towel.
2. Acetone or alcohol: For extra stubborn stains such as knife marks, pen marks and nail varnish, pour a generous amount of acetone into the stain and clean in a gentle and small circular motion with a cloth or non-abrasive sponge until the stain is removed. Rinse off the cleaning product and dry with a soft cloth or paper towel.
3. Mild Kitchen Bleach: For some extra stubborn stains, mild kitchen bleach may be required to remove the stain. This should only be used on Caesarstone light colours. Simply pour the mild bleach onto the stain and clean in a small circular motion. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning. Do not leave bleach on the surface for extended periods of time (no more than 24 hours).
4. To remove adhered materials like gum and sticky food, first carefully scrape away the excess with a scraper, and then clean the surface as normal.
*Never leave cleaning products on Caesarstone surfaces for extended periods of time (+24 hours).
*Do not use any abrasive pads to clean tougher stains as abrasives can damage the sheen of your countertop.
Tough? Yes. Indestructible? No!
Chemicals and cleaners to avoid
Should your surface accidently be exposed to any potentially damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect.
Therefore, we recommend avoiding placing hot pots, pans and oven trays directly on your Caesarstone surface, instead always using a hot pad or trivet.
Caesarstone surfaces are highly scratch resistant, however, when cutting, avoid using sharp objects such as knives directly on the surface. Always use a chopping board to avoid marks on your countertop.
