Silestone Care and Maintenance
Since Silestone is a non-porous material, it is stain resistant. And even though it resists stains, it is not stain-proof. This means that it must be cared for according to the care instructions provided by the company. What is the approved way of caring for Silestone? Without covering an exhaustive list of care and maintenance rules, There are some basic directions given by the company. One of the guidelines is:
"Bleach: Do not use for maintenance. When this product remains on the surface for more than 12 hours, it may lose its sheen."
As you can see from the above quote - contrary to what you may have read on the Internet - bleach should not be used for maintaining your Silestone surface.
Another informative guideline that comes from the Silestone website is:
"Do not use, under any circumstance: Hydrofluoric acid, dichloromethane, NaOH - caustic soda or paint strippers."
