Cleaning Advise on Newly Remodeled Kitchen

I just recently had my whole kitchen gutted and remodeled. I am very excited about it! The old kitchen was pretty bad. I'd like to know how to clean my stainless steel sink that is nonabrasive and also cleaning my Quartz countertops. I don't use anything with bleach in it because the countertop people said it's not a good idea. There are so many choices out there and I figured someone here might have some general advise on cleaning solutions. I want to take care of it the best that I can.

I don't have stainless or stone in my kitchen so I'm not much help. I just wanted to say I love your kitchen! It looks like the cabinets we put in ours a few years ago.

Oh that's so nice! I'd use what they recommended. I use baking soda on my kitchen sink and every few weeks I put vinegar and baking soda together and clean out the drain. That also gives a good scrub in the sink.

I love your new kitchen.  For our granite countertops I use a spray that the counter guys gave me. I understand that Home depot also sells one. And I've seen wipes at bed bath and beyond.

Love your kitchen...I have no idea on how to clean granite counter tops. I would do whatever they recommended.

That looks fantastic! Great job! My husband and I had a custom built kitchen when we built our house, wish we had opted for the nicer cabinets, they probably would have lasted a lot longer. Oh well. Absolutely love your countertops though!

I love Method products, especially their products meant for wood. Leaves a nice shine, very mild on the environment, and has a great smell. Methodhome.com has a list of their products.

Hope that helps! :)

Have a great day!

 I have all stainless and I got a cleaner from Home depot that they use to clean stainless with.   I have granite so I'm not sure about Quartz.  I would ask at a showroom that sells it. Usually they have cleaning products to use on the displays.

The kitchen looks great!  We just redid ours a few months ago too

I have granite counters and use a wet sponge for everyday clean-ups. Have never used a product except for sealing them once every couple of years. They still look like they did the day we put them in 10 years ago.

I use white vinegar on both my quartz counter tops and my stainless appliances. I've had both for 5 years and not problems with using the vinegar.
