Kitchen countertops should be cleaned regularly, as dirt and grease stains appear on them almost every day. If you don't do it on time, it will be very difficult to remove stains from the surface.

Cleaning experts do not recommend using metal scourers - they can scratch the surface. Read the OBOZREVATEL article on how to clean a kitchen countertop so that grease and yellow stains disappear quickly.

Life hack with baking soda

Soda is a versatile cleaner and odor-neutralizer. Mix baking soda with water in a small container to make a paste-like mixture. Then wipe the surface with the solution and rinse with clean, warm water.

Vinegar and water

White vinegar will help clean laminate and ceramic countertops. Mix it with water in a 1:1 ratio and apply it to the surface. It takes time to work, so leave it on for 15 minutes and then wipe it off with a damp sponge or cloth. If the odor remains, you can additionally wash the countertop with soapy water. Vinegar can also help to quickly remove old grease on the oven door.

Liquid soap and dishwashing liquid

A very simple but no less effective life hack. Mix dishwashing detergent and liquid soap in equal proportions and apply it to the countertop. Then rinse it off thoroughly with a sponge.

Life hack for yellow stains

Let's talk separately about yellow stains, which spoil the appearance of countertops. It can be difficult to get rid of them. You can use baking soda and lemon juice, mixing them in equal proportions. Rub the contaminated area carefully, with the soft side of the sponge. It is better to wipe the surface with a damp cloth beforehand.

Toothpaste with a whitening effect will also help. It is applied to the stains for 5-10 minutes and then washed off.

By the way, you should not use abrasive mixtures for washing countertops. Gel and creamy pastes are ideal. And for marble or glass countertops, it is better to buy professional cleaning products.
