Life hacks for cleaning the kitchen countertop

The kitchen countertop tends to accumulate dirt quickly, with the constant cooking resulting in instant grease, oil, and stain marks that can be challenging to clean even with chemical cleaners.

The cardinal rule for cleaning a kitchen countertop is timeliness. It's essential not to let grease penetrate the surface, as stains become difficult to clean once soaked in. Check out the OBOZREVATEL article for effective methods using common household items to remove dirt from the countertop.

Life hack with baking soda

One of the most popular tips from seasoned cleaning experts involves creating a paste using baking soda and water in proportions that yield a thick slurry. This paste proves effective not only in tackling dirt and grease but also in eliminating unpleasant odors.

How to clean the kitchen countertop from grease and unpleasant odors: tips

Life hack with soapy water

For laminate, ceramic, granite, marble, and wooden countertops, a soap and water solution is suitable. Dissolve some soap in warm water and add dishwashing detergent. Wipe the soiled surfaces with a cloth or sponge.

Experts do not recommend using abrasive cleaners for granite and laminate surfaces.

Life hack with vinegar

Laminate and ceramic countertops can be cleaned with white vinegar. Mix vinegar and water and leave the solution on the countertop for about 15 minutes.

After that, wipe the surface with a damp cloth. If the odor remains, wash the countertop with soapy water. Vinegar will also help to quickly remove old grease on the oven door.

For marble or glass countertops, it is better to use professional cleaning products.
