Cleaning bathroom countertops is an easy task you can do daily to keep your bathroom pristine. A daily wipe down removes excess moisture, preventing mould and mildew growth, as well as keeping your countertops looking clean and dry. 


The countertop around your bathroom sink and fixtures sees frequent activity, which makes them prone to harbouring high amounts of bacteria daily. Water and moisture also causes rust to form, which can cause stains and musty odours around your bathroom. Don’t fret, cleaning bathroom countertops doesn’t have to be such a chore!

How to Clean Different Types of Bathroom Countertops

Now, different countertop materials require different care, and this is true for your bathroom countertop as well. In this guide, we’ll show you how to clean your bathroom countertop based on different countertop materials you may currently have in your home. Remember, a clean bathroom makes for a healthy home!


How To Clean Glass Countertops In Bathroom

Glass countertops bring elegance to your bathroom - when clean. Otherwise, a dull glass bathroom countertop covered in fingerprints looks less stylish, and more gauche. 


To clean your glass countertops, best to use glass cleaners like Windex which are made specifically for glass surfaces. Alternatively, you can use vinegar diluted with water to remove grime and fingerprints, as well as prevent streaks on the glass. Place your preferred cleaning solution on a soft cloth and wipe your countertops clean.

How To Clean Wood Countertops In Bathroom

For those bathrooms that want that rustic, minimalist look, wooden countertops are the way to go. Wood brings a natural accent into your home as well, but are tough to keep clean as wood and water don’t mix well. 


Wooden countertops are often varnished, making them more water resistant. Keep your bathroom countertop dry by wiping off spills when they happen. Use a specialty cleaning solution meant for wooden surfaces, and avoid using abrasive scrubbers. Apply wax or oil sealant on your wooden surfaces to protect from water damage.


How To Clean Laminate Countertops In Bathroom

Laminate countertops are inexpensive, and come in a multitude of different patterns, colours, and designs. Laminate is a popular choice for many homes as they are durable, easy to maintain, and can last for decades with proper usage. Laminate can also be used in place of wood or natural stone for the classic look without the high maintenance.


Cleaning laminate countertops is a simple, straightforward process. Almost any non-corrosive and non-abrasive cleaner works well on laminate material, as long as the cleaning solution does not dissolve the adhesive. We recommend disinfecting formulas like Lysol All-purpose Cleaner or natural solutions like Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Multi-surface Everyday Cleaner.

How To Clean Marble Countertops In Bathroom

Natural stone materials, like Marble, used in countertops are classic choices for bathrooms. Marble is one of the most popular choices in bathroom floors, walls, and surfaces, as it adds elegance to the bathroom with its naturally swirly patterns and neutral colours. However, marble is prone to staining and etching, even with a varnished surface.


Marble and other stone countertops must be cleaned with a specially formulated cleaning solution that is gentle on the stone surface, while tough on stains. We recommend Ecozone Marble and Granite Daily Cleaner for a gentle formula that is suitable for everyday use. 


Alternatively, you can also use a solution made with 2 cups of water and 4 tablespoons of castile soap to clean your bathroom countertop. Castile soap cleans out stains, kills mould, and breaks down germs on your marble surface for the ultimate cleaning. Add a little baking soda, and rub away stains in circular motions.


How To Clean Granite Countertops In Bathroom

Like marble, granite is a popular option for bathroom countertops. Granite is also a natural stone but is much more durable than marble is. For one, granite countertops are less prone to etching, which occurs when acidic or corrosive cleaners are used on the surface. Granite countertops also do not require sealant or varnish, and do not stain easily despite being unvarnished.


However, granite countertops are still made from stone material and can dissolve under harsh chemical solutions. We recommend cleaning granite countertops with cleaning solutions formulated for granite material. Granite Gold All-Surface Wipes for convenient, yet efficient, cleaning while keeping your countertops safe from abrasion.

How to Remove Stains from Bathroom Countertops

Different materials require different cleaning methods and care. Know which method is most appropriate for your countertop type, so you can make the most out of your bathroom cleaning routine. However, there are times we cannot avoid stains, as the bathroom is used for many activities that use staining items like nail polish, hair dye, and colourants.


To remove stains from bathroom countertops, steer clear of acidic or bleach solutions. Instead, reach for stain removers like Cif Perfect Finish, which removes stains from mould, grease, mineral deposits, and more. For unsightly rust stains around your bathroom sink, Iron OUT Rust Stain Remover Powder does a great job cleaning multiple surfaces. 


For the DIY method, check your pantry for some table salt and baking soda. A paste made from a combination of the two, and a few drops of Dawn Dishwashing Liquid, tackles stains while providing a gentle scrubbing action that won’t scratch or damage even natural stone countertops.
