Silestone - Cleaning Instructions
WE KNOW HOW WATER WORKS and we know how to make it work better!


Silestone with Microban:

Care & Maintenance
  • Silestone® with Microban is virtually maintenance-free. It does not need to be sealed and cleaning is a cinch. Simply wipe the surface with soap and water on a regular basis to maintain its beauty and shine for years to come.

Difficult Spills
  • To remove difficult spills, soak the area for 10 minutes with a mild household cleaner (such as Formula 409®, Lysol®, or Windex®) then rinse and clean away with a soft cloth. Do not use any cleaners that contain abrasives as it will dull the surface of your polished Silestone. For stains that harden as they dry, such as food and gum, remove by gently scraping off of the surface (single edge razor blade) and then clean using warm water and soap.

Heat Protection
  • Silestone is resistant to heat and can withstand moderate temperatures for brief periods of time without being damaged. As with any natural stone, however, certain exposure to heat may cause cracks due to thermal shock. Always use a trivet to place hot items on Silestone. Do not use crock pots or electric skillets while in direct contact with Silestone natural quartz surfaces.

Harsh Chemicals to Avoid
  • The following will harm Silestone: Drano®, Liquid Plumr®, oven cleaners and floor strippers. Do NOT use these or any other harsh chemicals on your Silestone natural quartz surface.

Sunlight Exposure
  • Continuous long-term exposure to direct sunlight (UV rays) may result in slight discoloration of Silestone natural quartz surfaces.

General Precautions
  • To prolong the life of your knives, always use a cutting board. Natural quartz is one of the hardest minerals found in nature, making Silestone highly scratch-resistant. That same hardness may dull the sharpness of most knives.

Silestone Leather with Microban:

Routine Care
  • Please be aware that Silestone Leather requires more daily maintenance than other Silestone products.
  • While Silestone Leather is easily maintained, it does require more daily cleaning to maintain an even tone on its surface. Because of the three-dimensional feel of its surface, daily living (such as fingerprints and interaction with cooking utensils) show more on Silestone Leather than on other Silestone products. To keep it looking like new, clean the surface often with soap and water or a mild, low-pH household cleaner.
  • Some colors may show wear more than others, however, these are temporary signs of use. To clean these marks, as well as common spills, we recommend: Formula 409®, Fantastik®, Windex®, Bon Ami®, or other cleaning products containing vinegar.
  • As with other premium materials, such as wood flooring or leather products, consumers may use a conditioner to bring out the richness of Silestone Leather with Microban. Although the conditioner is not necessary, it can be used to heighten its color and luster. The use of a conditioner is purely temporary and will require either repeat applications to maintain a consistent luster on the surface or thorough cleaning to remove it.
  • Like other Silestone products, due to its non-porous nature, Silestone Leather does not need to be sealed.
