Below we have created an easy guide to help you successfully take care of your Porcelain surfaces.

Cleaning Porcelain Worktops

Keeping Porcelain worktops clean, could not be easier. Modern manufacturing processes give the material a glaze which protects the surface and acts as a waterproof barrier. As Porcelain is a waterproof material it is especially simple to keep clean as the thought of spillages on your countertop or what cleaning products to use should never be a worry. To keep Porcelain sanitized and hygienic simply wipe down with warm water, a clean cloth or sponge and a mild soap, this routine is all that is required to maintain a sanitary surface for food preparations.

What to avoid

It is important to not use harsh chemicals such as bleach or ammonia on any Porcelain surface and avoid using harsh cleaning objects such as abrasive cleaning cloths, in particular scourers or steel wool. Although these are very unlikely to cause any damage to the actual worksurface, they will create small scratches and micro-abrasions which can dull the polish of your worktop.
