Honing, cleaning of concrete and rough finishes
Note that honed, concrete and rough finishes require more cleaning than our polished finishes. Since these finishes have more exposed surface area, metal markings, fingerprints and other signs of everyday life will show. Most of these marks can be removed effortlessly with the use of non-abrasive cleaning products. And use a non-abrasive cleaning product like Soft Scrub Liquid Gel.
Which cleaners should not be used?
Remove the stain with a dry rag. For liquids, food and stubborn stains during cooking, use a damp cloth to wipe the surface stains, then use soap or detergent to spread evenly, and then wipe back and forth with a rag until the stains are removed, then rinse with water and dry.
Avoid chemicals with high alkalinity or pH. Cleaners that may contain this substance include oven grill cleaners, floor cleaners, toilet cleaners, oil soaps, stain removers, upholstery cleaners, drainage products, rags and those designed for cleaning granite, marble and other natural stone agent, etc. In case of accidental contact with any potentially harmful product, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect.

Is Quartz Stone Scratch Resistant?
The surface of Caesarstone is scratch resistant. However, avoid using sharp objects, such as knives or screwdrivers, directly on the surface. Always use a cutting board, especially on dark quartz, which tends to scratch more easily.
Avoid heavy accumulation
Avoid placing too much weight on your countertop. Excessive weight can also have an impact on the underlying cabinet structure.
Can a hot pot be placed on a quartz countertop?
Very brief moderate heat exposure can be tolerated, however, any stone can be damaged by sudden and rapid temperature changes, especially near edges. Therefore, the best practice to prevent discoloration or cracking is to use an inexpensive and easy-to-use tripod, especially when using cooking equipment such as electric frying pans, crock pots, or toasters. Do not place hot cookware directly on quartz countertops.

Quartz stone finish
Stone veneers give surfaces the final look in terms of tactility (tactility), light reflection, and the overall fusion of colors and patterns. It depends on the grounding depth experienced by the slab in its final stage. Honing is a more matte gloss with a flat, smoother texture, while polishing gives a highly reflective, luminous sheen.
