With countertops in your bathroom and kitchens, the messiest areas of your home, you’re bound to have some spills from time to time. If you wipe them up immediately, it’s very unlikely that you’ll have to deal with a stain. But sometimes, we miss something or don’t notice it at first, and then the spill has time to set and stain. 

How you go about cleaning the stains depends on what material your countertops are made of. If you have marble or granite countertops, you can clean stains in the same way. Each of these materials are best cleaned using a paste made of baking soda and water for oil-based stains and hydrogen peroxide for water-based stains.  For the baking soda paste, you’ll want to cover the stain and then cover the paste with plastic wrap and tape, then let it sit for a few days before you rinse it off. It’s also important to seal your marble and granite countertops regularly in order to prevent stains, chips, and cracks. 

For quartz countertops, you can use glass cleaner and a soft sponge to get rid of most stubborn stains. Most other stains can be cleaned simply with soap and water.
