What Are the Best Countertops for a Kitchen That Won’t Stain

Ugh, not another kitchen stain!

You try your best to be as careful as you can in the kitchen, but the rest of your family doesn’t share the same sentiment. Perhaps your partner or spouse is a lazy cook, or your family dog needs to be a part of the food prep action.

If you have children, it’s a wonder you manage to keep your kitchen clean at all, even semi-clean.

You don’t mind messes that you can easily sweep up, but when spills and stains get all over your counter, and especially when you don’t see them for hours later, you feel frustrated.

You’ve had counter materials permanently stain. You scrubbed and scrubbed, but nothing helped. You even tried some DIY cleaning methods, perhaps with vinegar or baking soda, and yet the stains persisted.

Now the time has come to replace your counters, and you don’t want to go through the same headache again. What you need are glass countertops.

Glass doesn’t stain. Yes, seriously!

How is that, you ask? Glass is nonporous, meaning it doesn’t absorb liquids. It doesn’t matter what you spill on glass, you won’t have to contend with stains. Even tough kitchen stains like wine, cooking grease, and cooking oils will not leave permanent marks on your counter.

It’s good to get into the habit of cleaning a glass countertop as soon as you can. When you notice spills and stains, you don’t need to use a heavy-duty cleaner to lift them.

First, blot at the stain with a dry paper towel. Next, fill a small bucket of lukewarm water and add a few drops of mild dish soap. Use plain, non-colored dish soap for easier cleaning.

Take a clean, dry microfiber cloth, dip it into the water and soap until it’s sudsy, and wring out the excess water. Wipe at the stain with the cloth. Put some elbow grease into it if needed, but don’t press too hard on the glass.

The stain should begin lifting. Once it’s gone, wipe over the area where the stain was with water to ensure you remove any residue.

Next, to dry the area, take a dry microfiber cloth and rub it over the wet part of your counter. Make sure you rub the cloth in a straight direction, not circularly, as that can create smudges.
