Does Engineered Quartz Stain?

Many people believe that quartz is maintenance free, but this isn’t necessarily true. Quartz is stain proof, but not completely stain free. Several substances can stain quartz, including hot sauce, turmeric, food coloring, and permanent marker. How do we get rid of these pesky stains?

Most stains can be removed with warm water, mild soap, and a non-scratch sponge. While this will remove the bulk of the stain, there may still be faint discoloring in your quartz. The best method for preventing staining is wiping spills as soon as they happen.

For more information, visit your quartz manufacturer’s website for care and cleaning instructions.
