Cleaning Kitchen Surfaces

Kitchen worktops can be breeding grounds for germs and bacteria.

Make sure you know how to clean different materials for maximum results.

* Porcelain and ceramic

Porcelain and ceramic surfaces are beautiful - follow these tips to help them stay that way.

1) Prevent damage from acids and harsh abrasives by washing with warm or hot soapy water.

2) For light stains try warm water and vinegar.

* Stainless steel

Stainless steel is great for resisting stains but it will dull over time and show oily fingerprints.

1) To remove rust, mix one part cream of tartar with a little lemon juice and apply the paste to the rust stains and rub in. If the rust is heavily embedded, leave the paste for a few hours. When finished, wipe clean.

2) Get a sparkling finish by removing streaks with baking soda and a cloth.

3) Standing water in a stainless steel basin can cause spotting, prevent this by wiping the sink dry after each use.

4) Remember not to use coarse scouring materials as this will scratch the surface.
