    The problem with using soap and water online on quartz is it can streaks because you aren't supposed to use oil based cleaners on quartz. This is why you need to mix it with something like rubbing alcohol. You can also buy store-bought cleaners made specifically for quartz that are safe

    Most of the time I just use a Microfiber cloth and water. If there's something greasy or just plain yucky, just use all purpose liquid cleaner. That's the joy of quartz --- it doesn't need special treatment to stay beautiful.

    !when I had mine installed I was told to use windex or plain water and a microfiber cloth. Mostly I use water or occasionally antibacterial windex when I need to. I have my quartz counter tops for over 8 years and still look like new. Love them, they're the best!

    To get hard water stains off, rub the spots with dry 0000-grade steel wool. Lightly buff the stains until they disappear. Wipe the loosened mineral buildup off the quartz countertop, using a dry cloth.

The first time gets all the gunk off, the second time with the clean water and cloth makes it shine and not smear. I have written a tutorial about it and you can find it here -
