    Purpose Cleaner or rubbing alcohol.

  • Cosmetics

    *Tip: Please remove any residue from the hydrogen peroxide solution after cleaning to avoid any changes to HanStone’s brilliant surface.

  • Metals

    Accordian

    Noticing metal marks on a quartz surface can often be confused for scratches. Such metal marks can be easily removed using simple methods.

    HanStone recommends using a white latex eraser. Delicately rub the eraser on the affected area, once the stain is gone, clean the surface with one of the daily cleaning solutions as recommended.*
