Your kitchen counter is literally the workhorse of the kitchen. Even on the days you don’t do any cooking, you probably use your counter. It’s where you plop down the day’s mail. It’s where you stand while you’re waiting for the coffee to brew. It’s where you unpack groceries. And on the days you cook, well, then it’s getting splattered with ingredients gone astray, covered with crumbs, and more. The point? The counter takes a lot of abuse.
Maybe you sweep up crumbs every night before you go to bed. But what about a deeper clean? Here’s how to care for your kitchen counter — organized by whatever type you may have.
