Bathroom countertops can be the secret to adding a touch of class to your bathroom. The best way to polish a bathroom countertop varies depending on the type of material from which it is made. Most countertop materials, such as wood, granite, marble, and tile, are not impervious to scratches, stains, and smudges. Common household products that double up as polish agents are orange juice, nail polish remover, vinegar, and bicarbonate soda.

Water-Based Cleansers

Marble bathroom countertops need the most care. Polishing them involves using a water-based cleanser and a piece of cloth. Do not use acid-based products or abrasive materials like steel wool, as marble is sensitive and can be damaged in a matter of minutes.

Plastic laminated countertops are the easiest to polish. Use a scrubbing pad and water to loosen any smears. Apply a polishing cleanser with a wet sponge, rubbing gently as you go along.

Surface Polishers

Commercial surface polishes, such as lemon Pledge, are the best choice for wooden countertops. Spray it on and use a soft piece of cloth to spread it. You will achieve a shiny finish as well as a pleasant spring scent.
