Everyday Cleaning

Caesarstone® surfaces require very little maintenance to keep them looking like new. For everyday, routine cleaning of Caesarstone® we recommend wiping the surface with warm soapy water (a mild detergent) and a clean damp cloth, or use our convenient Caesarstone® Cleaning Wipes or Caesarstone® Spray Cleaner. Do not use the cloth you use to wash the dishes, as it may transfer oils and other contaminants to the Caesarstone® surface.

As Caesarstone® is virtually non-porous, it will keep its lustrous gloss and ultra smooth surface which never needs polishing or sealing. Never attempt to polish the surface and avoid prolonged rubbing in one spot when cleaning.


Caesarstone® Cleaning Products

Caesarstone® has developed a range of specially formulated cleaning products designed to keep your quartz surfaces looking their best. Caesarstone® Cream Cleanser, Cleaning Wipes and Spray Cleaner are available to purchase through our Online Store.


Cleaning Reference Guide

To remove adhered materials like food, gum and nail polish, first scrape away the excess with a sharp blade. If there are any grey metal marks on the surface, use a small amount of Caesarstone Cream Cleanser on the light blue sponge side of 3M™ scrubber, gently rub over the mark and thoroughly rinse with warm water to remove it. Household bleach can generally be used as an effective cleaner to remove stubborn marks, but care should be taken as some products are considerably stronger than others.

If you have stubborn marks which still can’t be removed, view our online FAQ or contact us on our 1300 119 119 for further advice.


Tough? Yes. Indestructible? No.

As with any surface, Caesarstone® can be permanently damaged by exposure to strong chemicals and solvents that undermine its physical properties. Do not use products that contain trichlorethane or methylene chloride, such as paint removers or stripper. Avoid all contact with highly aggressive cleaning agents like oven cleaners that have high alkaline/pH levels. Should the surface be accidentally exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect.


Heat Resistance

Caesarstone® is heat resistant, however like all stone materials; Caesarstone® can be damaged by sudden and rapid surface temperature changes. A good rule of thumb is that if your hand cannot tolerate the level of heat of an item to be placed on the surface for more than a few seconds, then the heat source is too high. Therefore we always recommend placing hot pots, oven trays and fry pans directly from the oven or hot plate onto a wooden chopping board or cork mat. We also recommend that all electrical cooking appliances such as electric frying pans and slow cookers are also placed on a wooden chopping board.


Food Preparation

We always recommend cutting on an appropriate cutting board and never directly on the
Caesarstone® surface to avoid blunting kitchen knives or damaging the surface of your
bench top.
