CARE

With simple, care, Zodiaq® quartz surface will retain its radiant, lustrous appearance for many years. For routine cleaning, simply wipe down your countertop with a damp cloth or paper towel and, if necessary, a small amount of non-bleach, non-abrasive cleanser. Even though Zodiaq® surfaces resists permanent staining when exposed to liquids (such as wine, vinegar, tea, lemon juice and soda) or fruits and vegetables, you’ll want to wipe up food and liquid spills as soon as possible.For stubborn or dried spills, use a nonabrasive cleaning pad such as a white 3M Scotch-Brite®* scrub pad coupled with Formula 409®** Glass & Surface Cleaner** or a comparable cleaning product.DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz surfaces are heat- and scratch-resistant, but not heat- and scratch-proof.  Use trivets or pads with hot pots, and always use a cutting board. Never chop or slice food directly on
your countertops.Because it is non-porous, Zodiaq® quartz surface does not require sealants or waxes. Zodiaq® keeps its lustrous gloss and ultra-smooth surface without polishing or applying sealant. Avoid using cleaners that contain bleach. Always follow the cleaner manufacturer’s use instructions and exercise proper care when handling and storing any cleaning products.Casual exposure to alkaline solutions, such as diluted bleach, will not damage Zodiaq® quartz surfaces. Highly alkaline (high pH) cleaners, such as oven cleaners and concentrated bleach, are not recommended. When grease from cooking is an issue, use Greased Lightning***, or a comparable degreasing product, to help loosen and remove the grease from the surface. Follow the cleaner manufacturer’s instructions for use.Keep permanent markers and inks away from your countertops. Should these agents come into contact with the surface, clean first as outlined above in Routine Care. If the stain persists, moisten a cloth with Goo Gone®****, or a comparable product, and rub it into the stain. Rinse thoroughly with warm water to remove any cleaner residue. Avoid exposing Zodiaq® quartz surfaces to strong chemicals and solvents, especially paint removers or furniture strippers containing trichlorethane or methylene chloride. Keep nail polish remover, bleach, bluing, permanent markers or inks, and oil soaps away from your Zodiaq® quartz countertops.
