Keeping Your Countertops Clean this Summer

It’s finally happening: After a seemingly endless winter, the snow is melting, the grass is growing, flowers are blooming, and warm weather has finally arrived. After being cooped up inside all winter, everyone is eager to get out and enjoy the summer, but with everybody going in and out, summer can be a hard time on your nice, clean house. Playing in the yard is fun, but it also means grass stains on clothes, and muddy shoes tracking onto your carpet. One thing that a lot of people don’t realize, though, is how rough summer can be on your kitchen countertops.

Summer is prime grilling season, which means a lot of cooking happens outside. But the food that you cook on the grill still has to get prepped somewhere, and that’s usually your kitchen. And since that prepared food is going outside for a cookout, it may not always be easy to clean up right away. After all, who wants to stay scrubbing the kitchen when everyone is out on the patio enjoying the afternoon?

Plus, grilling isn’t exactly the cleanest method of cooking around. It’s easy enough for utensils to get brought into the house without being cleaned off, and while those black stripes may make your chicken sandwich look delicious, you don’t want them on your countertops.

Grilling aside, summer also means more coming and going in the kitchen, as the kids run in to grab a snack or a drink of juice and then run back out again, and it’s easy for them to not even notice a spill or a stain until well after it’s been made. That’s why, regardless of what kind of cooking you’re planning to do this summer, it’s a good time to keep your countertops in mind. If you’ve got beautiful, natural stone countertops in your kitchen, you don’t want them to get ruined by a careless stain, but you also don’t want to spend too much of your precious summer worrying about the cleanliness of your kitchen.
