How to Clean Kitchen & Bathroom Countertops*

We’ll show you how to clean all of your kitchen countertops and bathroom countertops with Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaner, when used as directed. Just follow these simple step-by-step instructions to remove grime and grease on surfaces like quartz, stainless steel and granite, and leave behind a fresh, clean scent you love. 

TIP: Be sure to check whether you’re using our new concentrated Pine-Sol® formula or the old non-concentrated formula, as that will determine your dilution ratio. See the chart below and get your ratios right!

  1. Step 1 Dilute ⅛ cup of Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaner in one gallon of water.
  2. Step 2 Dip a sponge in the mixture to wipe grease and grime away. Or pour the mixture into a spray bottle for quick-cleaning spritzes. Prepare fresh solution daily.
  3. Step 3 Scrub crevices in counters with grout with an old toothbrush.
  4. Step 4 Scrub stubborn messes or stains with full strength Pine-Sol®, using a microfiber cloth. Finish by rinsing with water.

With an improved concentrated formula that is 2x as strong* to last 2x as long*, you can use less for the same great clean.
