How Performing a Deep Cleaning?

Purchase nonabrasive surface cleaner. You can find it in big box stores or grocery stores in the same aisle as glass cleaner. Make sure it’s free of alkaline chemicals like lye or acidic chemicals like vinegar. The label should point out that the product is safe for quartz.

Spray the cleaner on the tiles. Apply enough cleaner to cover the surface of the tiles. Let it sit for approximately 10 minutes. This will give the product enough time to remove any deeply embedded dirt.

Wipe away the cleaner. Dampen a clean nonabrasive sponge or cloth. Glide it across the tiles in gentle counterclockwise strokes until the cleaner is completely removed. Dry the surface with a clean nonabrasive cloth.

Remove sticky messes with citrus-based cleaner. Spray the affected area with Goo Gone or a similar citrus cleaner. Make sure the label states that the product is safe for quartz. Rub the area with a clean nonabrasive cloth using gentle counterclockwise strokes. Dry the area with a clean nonabrasive cloth.

Give it a spritz and a wipe and call it a day. Avoid using vinegar, citrus, or harsh chemical cleaners on Soapstone tiles. Cleaning products containing strong acids are a particularly big no-no. These can actually eat away at the soft stone over time, robbing it of its luster and leaving it vulnerable to serious damage like etching, pitting, or breaking.
