Home Tips On How To Keep Your Tristone Worktops Clean

With over two decades of experience with all sorts of kitchen worktops, it is fair to say we know a thing or two about looking after them. Among the most popular worktops we offer these days is Tristone, a 100% acrylic material that is non-porous, resistant to staining and also a good choice if you want a work surface that won’t harbour microbes.

As such, it is an excellent choice in both bathrooms and kitchens. However, just because it is relatively easy to maintain does not mean that you won’t want to look after it. How do you keep Tristone worktops in mint condition? Read on to find out.

Everyday Cleaning

To keep your Tristone worktops looking as good as the day they were first installed is not hard. All you need to do is to wipe them over with nothing more than a cloth and some soapy water.

Many people will find that a microfibre cloth is most useful for this sort of job but the fact is that general-purpose kitchen cloths will often do just as good a job. The only thing to avoid is a cloth that has become stained and is past its best. You don’t need to add any cleaning agents to the soap and water, either.

However, once you have wiped your Tristone work surfaces over, it is best to then dry them off with a tea towel or something similar. This won’t make them any cleaner but it will help you to avoid ‘tide marks’ from where the soapy water would otherwise evaporate.

Dealing With Stains

General use will mean you get the odd spillage on any worktop. So long as you wipe up any mess in the aforementioned way, you can keep your Tristone worktops looking good. However, you may face a more serious stain from time to time.

Perhaps a child draws on the work surface with a crayon or a colouring pen? Maybe some ketchup is spilt and goes unnoticed for a while? Sometimes, even makeup can get onto worktops, too. Whatever may be the cause, stains need to be removed with a bit more care. What you should do will vary according to which type of Tristone worktop you own, however.

Dull Finishes

If you have a dull finish on your Tristone worktop, then use an abrasive kitchen cleaner and a no-scratch pad to get rid of stains. Move your pad in a circular motion without pushing down hard for the best results. Wipe over with soap and water once the stain has gone.

Semi-gloss Finishes

Owners of Tristone worktops with semi-gloss finishes need to take a little extra care. Use a white no-scratch pad with a mildly abrasive cleaner that has been diluted with a little bleach to ensure you get good results without damaging the attractive finish of your work surface.

Gloss Finishes

If you have a Tristone worktop with a gloss finish, then do the same as you would for a semi-gloss finish surface. However, instead of a no-scratch pad, you should use a sponge instead. It may take a little longer to remove stains with a sponge but the extra protection they afford is worth it.
