Easy, Streak-Free Countertop Cleaner

Wiping down shiny countertops can leave annoying streaks. This applies to polished finishes on natural stone countertops, stainless steel, glass countertops, and solid surfacing even though it has a slightly more matte finish. Here's a simple and effective way to battle those streaks once and for all:Lots of people buy a special streak-free spray for cleaning such countertops. But you can save money and use what you already have on hand in the kitchen anyway. Simply clean up streak-prone countertops with warm water and a drop of pH balanced dishwashing soap.

Put a drop on a clean dish cloth, agitate under warm water, and wipe down countertops. Makes sense since those streaks are caused by the same greases that the dishwashing soap breaks up on cookware and dishes. This also works on glass-topped electric cooktops.
