Tips on How to Clean Countertops

Smooth sailing surface cleaning tips

Whether you have a little bit of time or a lot, here are some handy solutions for keeping your kitchen countertop looking like new.

  • Wipe up small spills with Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes.
  • Disinfect the countertop with just a few quick spritzes. Clorox® Clean-Up® Cleaner + Bleach kills 99.9% of common household germs—such as E. coli, Staphylococcus (Staph), Salmonella as well as viruses that can cause colds and flu—in 30 seconds.
  • What about that pesky red wine stain on your kitchen tile that won’t go away? Put the Clorox® Bleach Pen® Gel to work and watch the stain disappear. For stains that have been there a while, repeat use or leave the gel on for several minutes.
  • For those messy puddles of cooking oil, first sprinkle a healthy measure of salt over the area and wait for it to soak up the oil (immediately wiping with a towel or sponge can simply spread the oil and increase the mess). Sweep up the salt and clean the area with Clorox® Clean-Up® Cleaner + Bleach.
