Quartz Carrara Kitchen Counterop
August 18, 2013
I'm in love with the look for Quartz carrara countertops and am considering that for my new kitchen. My fear is that with all the cooking I do, I may stain it. (I am Indian and we use a lot of Turmeric) . What are my options of cleaning quartz counters clean and without stains? Does it loose it's shine soon? What sort of maintenance is required for these? Any other alternate suggestions?

Protect the counter with washcloth when cooking with spices.

Buy a quartz sample. Mix up some turmeric with whatever oil you usually use. See if it stains.

Turmeric does stain Quartz, but it can be removed with magic eraser.

I have white quartz. It is no maintenance. I use 409 to clean. If there is a "stain" I leave the 409 sitting on it for a few minutes and so far anything has wiped off.
