Real natural stone does more than fulfil your dream of having a stone effect splashback – it perfects it! The colour and texture of your stone slab are the result of a unique combination of minerals with veins, inclusions and tectonic cracks. All this makes natural stone an exclusive piece of world history. Fluctuations are not only normal, but even desired.
The most important tips for daily life with natural stone in the kitchen are:
- When cleaning, avoid cleaners and polishes containing grease, wax or acid. These can impair the surface appearance of your kitchen splashback.
- Sauce splashes and other liquids are best removed quickly with a lint-free cotton cloth and a little water. This prevents the formation of stains, especially on light-coloured stone.
Cleaning a stone kitchen splashback: Nothing could be easier!
A few splashes on the splashback are not uncommon in a creative kitchen. With your natural stone wall, this is no problem at all because the surface can be hygienically cleaned in a matter of seconds. For daily cleaning of your natural stone product, we recommend using household cleaners such as
- water with a drop of washing-up liquid
- vinegar-based cleaners
- or mild degreasers
Wipe the stone surface clean with a dishcloth and dry with a lint-free cotton cloth. By re-drying, you will prevent the formation of small limescale spots on the surface, especially in regions with hard water.
If you opt for textured natural stone, some soiling may be a little harder to remove compared to a polished surface. Again, we recommend using one of the cleaners mentioned above. You can then easily remove deposits with a sponge or a soft-bristled brush.
Maintenance of natural stone: A few simple steps are sufficient
Our natural stone slabs will already be waterproofed when you receive them. This protects the material from stains and ensures the surface is easy to clean. You can easily refresh this protection at home by applying "Lithofin Fleckstop W". For an optimal protective effect, it is sufficient to treat the kitchen splashback once or twice a year with this water-based agent.
