- Wipe up spills immediately: One of the most important things you can do to protect your worktop is to wipe up spills immediately. Not only will this prevent staining, but it will also make cleaning your worktop easier.
- Use a cutting board: When you’re preparing food, it’s important to use a cutting board to protect your worktop from sharp knives and other utensils. This will prevent scratches and nicks in the surface.
- Avoid abrasive cleaning products: Abrasive cleaning products and scrubbers can scratch or dull the finish of your worktop. Instead, use a mild detergent or soap and warm water to clean the surface, and dry it with a soft cloth.
- Avoid placing hot pots and pans directly on the surface: High temperatures can cause damage to your worktop, so avoid placing hot pots and pans directly on the surface. Use trivets or heat pads to protect your worktop.

- Apply a sealer: To protect your worktop from stains and damage, apply a sealer to the surface. This will also make cleaning your worktop easier.
- Avoid exposure to strong chemicals: Strong chemicals, such as bleach and drain cleaners, can damage your worktop. Avoid using these products on your worktop.
- Regularly wipe down the surface: Regularly wipe down the surface with a microfiber cloth to remove dust and debris. This will keep your worktop looking clean and shiny.
