Care & Maintenance


Silestone® is the hybrid surface of premium minerals, quartz and recycled materials more advanced and sustainable on the market, manufactured with the exclusive and innovative HybriQ® technology.

General Cleaning

Due to their low porosity, Silestone® (with or without HybriQ technology) is a highly resistant to household stains surface. Cosentino recommends using Q-Action* to clean its Silestone® (with or without HybriQ technology) surfaces. If you don’t have this product, the best option is to use water and neutral soap. You should then finish off by rinsing the surface with plenty of water and drying it with kitchen paper or a clean cotton dishtowel.

Cleaning Stubborn Stains

When faced with stubborn stains, the best way to fix it depends on the type of stain. The most usual cases are:

→ Grease Stains Apply Q-Action or similar (dishwasher soapy product) onto the stain and rub it with a blue type scouring pad or sponge until it disappears. Repeat the process if necessary. Next, rinse with a generous amount of water and dry the affected area.

→ Limescale Use cleaning vinegar and a blue type scouring pad or damp sponge. If the stain persists, you can use a limescale remover that has been diluted with water. Never leave it on for more than 2 minutes. Repeat the process if necessary. Rinse with plenty of water and dry with paper.

→ Silicone and Putty Stains We recommend you remove the stains as soon as they appear. To do so, use a knife held horizontally and CleanColorsil, and scrub with a blue sponge. If you don’t have any CleanColorsil, you can use a well-known brand of silicone remover. Afterwards, rinse with plenty of water and dry.

Avoiding Heat Damage

After using certain kitchen utensils, such as frying pans, pots and other items that give off heat, do not place them directly onto the surface. Instead, you should use a tablemat (a rubber one, if possible) until the utensils have cooled down. This is because the sharp difference in temperature (between hot and cold) can damage the surface.
