what do you clean your worktops with?

I didn't used to care about my worktops but I have a shiny new kitchen so a quick wipe with a wet sponge with a squirt of fairy on it doesn't seem fitting any more grin.
I like things that smell lovely. What does everyone use?

We have shiny worktops.

Just have a spray bottle of water and washing up liquid. Quick spray, wipe and then dry with a micro fibre cloth as you go.
Brings them up lovely.

sponge and squirt of washing up liquid is perfectly adequate.

if in hard water area a vinegar spray helps get rid of lime scale.

I like the Method sprays. Currently using the clementine one. Lavender one is nice too.

Clementine! Ooh sounds festive. I may get some.
I'm glad what I'm doing is ok. We are in a soft water area if that makes a difference.

I have a water filter so soft water, limescale not an issue. Currently using Flash with bleach spray, then following with water to reduce the clinical smell. On corian worktop, which can take it. Paranoid about bugs from meat etc.
Usually use Dettol spray. Flash was on offer.

Zoflora diluted in a spray bottle. Just switched over to a Christmassy cinnamon one.

Method grapefruit. You'll never use anything else again.

I've never seen method in shops before, is it available in supermarkets?
Love zoflora.

Jealous of shiny worktops. We have wood (not our choice) and I bloody hate it sad

gaggiagirl Thu 19-Nov-15 21:53:34

misty wood is good! Ours is pretend wood but its shiny we also have scrubbed pine, I think it looks rustic.

Method multi surface. It's great. No streaks.

Method grapefruit multi surface. Smells lovely.

WingsClipped Fri 20-Nov-15 09:33:06

And yes you can get it in supermarkets- definitely in Ocado or Waitrose. They also sell it in John Lewis

I use Method sprays as well.

Fairylea Fri 20-Nov-15 09:39:22

I just use whatever is on offer at tesco! I also particularly like their 70p multi surface spray in the green bottle, it's Apple scented I think. It works really well.

Fabellini Fri 20-Nov-15 09:39:26

I use this because it works great and smells gorgeous. Friends often remark on it, and I have converted several of them!
I use lots of the other Maison Belle products too and have found them all to be really good.

Diluted ammonia in a spray bottle. Great for getting rid of greasy streaks on tiles and glass hobs. I have laminate workfops.

Another fan of method, the grapefruit one is lovely. I've got plain white quartz so everything shows up on it though nothing stains, for marks that don't come off with a spray and a wipe I use a bit of Barkeepers Friend.

Cant wait to go product shopping now! Think I'm going for method!

Zorflora here diluted in a spray bottle with a microfibre cloth. I use bluebell woods for the kitchen. I'm obsessed with Zorflora, have different scents for different rooms, living room and hallway is Cherry Blossom. Downstairs loo is Springtime. Bedrooms is Lavender and upstairs loo is Linen Fresh.

LOL. Just read that back I sound a bit crazy. hmm

gaggiagirl Sat 21-Nov-15 03:47:16

gene no you don't you sound perfect! Zoflora is amazing stuff. Still haven't tried the linen one.

ProcrastinatorGeneral Sat 21-Nov-15 15:35:07

I use the citrus zoflora, if things need a scrub I break out the magic sponges.

Id like to try the cherry blossom zoflora, will have to look out for it.

gaggiagirl Sat 21-Nov-15 15:48:39

Apple orchard one is a winner too.

bigbadbarry Sat 21-Nov-15 15:49:51

Method here too.
