A backsplash is a great way to add character to your kitchen, but having a dirty backsplash can take away from your unique look. Today, there are many kitchen backsplashes made of different materials, each with their own cleaning needs. We’ve compiled tips for several different kinds and present to you our guide on how to get a clean backsplash.


How to Clean Backsplash


Glass Tile

Cleaning glass tile backsplash is a breeze. Combine a little bit of vinegar, water, and a mild soap together in a spray bottle and lightly mist your kitchen backsplash. Let the mixture sit for a couple minutes on the kitchen backsplash and use a soft sponge or wet rag to scrub the grout clean.


Stainless Steel

Use a stainless steel cleaner. Spray the cleaner on the stainless steel and then rub into the backsplash in a buffing motion with a rag or sponge. Remove any leftover cleaning residue using a dry cloth. Repeat as needed.



Use warm soapy water and a sponge or cloth. Dip the sponge or cloth into the soapy water and rub your stone backsplash until all dirt and grime is gone. After cleaning the backsplash thoroughly, dry with a clean cloth.


Remove Stains from Stone Backsplash

A poultice spread is a great way to remove stains from stone. To make the poultice, mix flour and hydrogen peroxide into a paste the consistency of sour cream. Spread this over the stain using a putty knife. Let the poultice sit for 48-72 hours to absorb the stain. Wipe off the poultice with a wet sponge and dry with a clean cloth.



Make a salt, flour, and white vinegar paste. Apply the paste to the copper and let it sit for about two hours. After two hours rinse the backsplash with warm soapy water and dry with a clean cloth.


Remove Grease Stains from Kitchen Backsplash

Kitchen backsplash can accumulate a lot of grease. Grease stains are quick to clean if you have the right products. You can use Goo Gone or Grease Grizzly to get rid of any stubborn grease stains on any kind of backsplash you may have.


Always Use Gloves to Clean Backsplash

Gloves will keep your hands protected from harsh cleaners or soap while you work to get that clean backsplash. Keep a pair of rubber gloves in your cleaning closet or store them with any cleaning products you use. Wearing gloves will keep your hands from getting dry and dirty.

Now your backsplash looks great! Your stove area looks more like a work of art than a place where you make stir fry. Keep it looking like perfection by getting into a regular cleaning routine and share the source of your new-found cleaning expertise with your friends!
