Before you learn the most important tips for cleaning and caring for Silestone kitchen countertops, we will describe what Silestone is and how it is made! Silestone is a high quality quartz material with integrated hygiene protection, which has the following properties:

- it consists of up to 94% natural quartz, one of the hardest materials
- high resistance to stains, as the material is not porous
- high scratch resistance
- wide range of colors - there are more colors possible than with natural stone
- bacteriostatic hygiene protection.

For these reasons, Silestone is one of the most popular materials for kitchen countertops worldwide.

How does the daily care and cleaning of Silestone work?

As the surface of the material is not porous, the absorption of liquids is largely avoided. But still: it is more sensible and better to remove a new stain immediately than to worry about the consequences of a possible stain later. For daily care and cleaning, use a damp cloth and warm water. Optionally, you can also use a neutral cleaner. But please do not use detergent for cleaning. Silestone also offers its own product (Q-Action).

How do you dissolve dried rests or stains?

Use a blunt plastic scraper and carefully loosen the dried residues without damaging the plate.

How can I remove water stains (e.g. from glass edges)?

Simply apply a mild anti-limescale agent to the surface, leave to work for a short time and then wash off with sufficient water. Please always follow the manufacturer's instructions for the respective anti-limescale agent. And please use the agent only where the stain is, so as not to strain other parts of the surface.

What does the surface of your Silestone kitchen countertop not like?

Here you will find a small (not complete) excerpt of the agents that can damage your Silestone kitchen countertop:

- aggressive chemicals such as stain removers, drain cleaners, ...
