How Stone & Caesarstone Benchtop Stain

Why treat your something that costs 3x more than your leather lounge with less respect and care

It’s STONE! and should not stain or chip.

Nor is it INDESTRUCTIBLE! Whilst this is 92-97% true as engineered stone or as it is referred to in Australia. Mostly due to marketing and being the first brand introduced in the country.

Hear you ask, “92-97% true, engineered stone is that “Man Made”. Subsequently constructed from 94-97% Stone (by weight). Hence what makes up the rest is a mixture of binding agents, reacting agents, fillers and oxides for colour. Stone & Caesarstone Benchtop Stain /s occur mostly to the other 3-6%. Though damage can occur to the QUARTZ content if subjected to heat and heavy chemicals.

In general, people turn to OLD FAVOURITES when it comes to cleaning or what they know or feel comfortable with. Since this is mostly widely advertised or traditional myths when it come to cleaning. Due to the rise of CLEANING GURU’S of the 90’s like Shannon. Believe it or not Vinegar and Baking Soda can not solve all stain and cleaning issues. As you may not be aware things like Vinegar, Orange or Citric based cleaners are acids.and along with bleach do effect the surface of what you clean. Does not matter the surface type or make up. Like baking soda, magic erasers. cream cleaners all contain abrasives and wear away the stain. This is fine on matt or semi matt surfaces in general. Devastating on Gloss and High Gloss surfaces.

HINT: Use the correct cleaners especially made for engineered stone

  • Spices – Turmeric, Curry
  • Pen, Ink & Markers

When a stain is NOT a stain

Water marks are caused from chemical attack to the surface. Particularly from bleach or bleach containing products commonly added to everyday cleaning products. Though solvent based can also cause water marking along with caustic and citric acids. All in all, everyday spray cleaners contain one of the known water marking agents. ONLY USE engineered stone cleaning products


  • Most Spray Cleaners
  • Bleach and sodium salts
  • Solvent based cleaners
  • Citric acid – orange base
  • all in everyday spray cleaners
  • if unsure read product MSDS

White spots are one of those instances that what you think is a stain is actually damage to the surface. Consequently rougher to touch, white to grey in colour. Do not attempt to erase, bleach or rub the mark/s as you will do further damage. Also you will dull the gloss finish to the surrounding area.

  • Oven Cleaner
  • Draino
  • Caustic Soda
  • Strong Bleach

Dull marks or hazing to the surface is caused on in the most part by rubbing a stain with an abrasive cleaner. Similarly sandpaper will do the same as often the abrasive compound used is contatined in most cream cleaners. Hence why Gumption is a big no, no for stone and caesarstone benchtop stain removal. Dull spots can also be caused by bleach or bleach containing cleaners.

    I have inadvertently used an abrasive cleaner on my granite bench top in an attempt to remove some hard water stains. I understand now that this was a big mistake . This seems to have taken the protective sealer off of the area that I attempted to clean. Is there any way I can rectify the damage that this has caused.

      This is etching which is not a stain but damage. The damage is caused by caustic or corrosiveness of the product use. There is NO COATING to quartz, engineered or man made stone. All stone including Natural is polished using an inline polisher. Which gives the high gloss finish. The denser the stone the better the shine or polish.

      Abrasive cream cleaners such as Bar Keepers Friend, Jiff, Gumption or anything else are not only abrasive but they are highly corrosive.

      It can be repaired, there is a product that can repair light etching.

    Hi, Im in trouble. We have a manufactured benchtop in the bathroom. I use a salt and water mouthwash, and have not diligently washed the benchtop afterward. From an angle, we now have extensive whitening of the stone when viewed in the wrong light! My wife is not happy. It looks just like that watermarks above. The gloss is still the same. How can I remove this whitening?

      This is etching which is not a stain but damage. The damage is caused by caustic or corrisiveness of the product. Mouthwash has a couple of chemicals in it that does damage surface. Plus the pH is over 10.

      Lemon juice or anything with a high vitiam c contant is highly acidic.
      Diamond Quartz Polish will do the trick, it will remove all light etching to any stone especially quartz. Restoring the surface and shine. PS Great to restore the shine of any older Caesarstone or stone benchtops.

      There is a DIY Polishing kit about to be released by them.
