Don’t Scrub Quartz With Harsh Pads
Quartz, or engineered stone, is a very popular countertop material for a few reasons. It looks great, it’s easy to maintain, it can be custom-made in a variety of shapes and sizes, and it’s stain resistant. Notably, however, quartz is not scratch resistant. You should avoid cleaning quartz with any sort of harsh cleaning pad, such as a Brillo pad or steel wool. The scratchy surface of that kind of pad make it great for cleaning spills and stains that need a little more “oomph”, but they can just as easily scratch and permanently mark up materials like quartz.
