Year-round the kitchen is heart of the home and a natural gathering place for family and friends. During the summer months, the kitchen is also likely to be a temporary holding spot for the season’s abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables. From thickly sliced sun-ripened tomatoes to freshly shucked corn on the cob, summertime eating is usually at its best with fresh flavors and minimal cooking time.
If you’re one of those lucky enough to have a green thumb and a little real estate to plant on, this might also be a time of year when your garden is bursting with more zucchini, cucumbers, corn and tomatoes than your kitchen can hold. Or maybe the overabundance is the result of going a little overboard with all of the variety at the farmers market. Midway through the summer there’s often a potential for the season’s abundance to overtake the kitchen, spilling out from the refrigerator onto the kitchen counters and beyond.
Just as you carefully choose those foods, it’s also worthwhile to choose a counter-top cleaner that is designed to clean the soil and stains those fresh foods can leave behind. Fruits and vegetables left to sit on the counter too long can break down, creating a potential for the acidic juices. These acids in the fruits and vegetables can break down the protective seal on stone surfaces if the stain is allowed to sit for too long, leaving the potential for unwanted discoloration and stains.
Similar to the care you take in selecting fruits and vegetables for their optimal flavor and nutritious value, Rock Doctor believes that it’s important to have a natural kitchen counter cleaning product that is designed to protect your countertops. The fresh scent of Rock Doctor’s Granite & Quartz Cleaner non-acidic and non-abrasive formula will also not compete with other kitchen smells and won’t leave a residue behind where food is prepared. Safe for sealed natural and cultured marble and granite tabletops, the Granite & Quartz Cleaner leaves surfaces free from streaks and will not leave any unwanted discoloring on tile grout.
Rock Doctor’s Granite & Quartz Cleaner is also great for use throughout the kitchen on stainless steel appliances. The precise Granite & Quartz Cleaner’s aerosol dispensing system delivers the perfect amount of product each time. Prior to cleaning any stone surface, always make sure to dust off the area. This helps to remove any debris that might inadvertently scratch the stone surface. It’s also smart to test a small area before proceeding with a full application of the Rock Doctor Granite & Quartz Cleaner. Then all that is required is to spray the area and then gently wipe the surface with a clean paper towel or a soft cloth. Beautiful every time!
