How to Use a Concrete Countertop Wax

Concrete wax is a simple and cost-effective way to add an additional wear layer of protection on a concrete countertop or concrete table. Continue reading to learn how to use a concrete countertop wax as well as additional care and maintenance tips to keep your concrete countertop stain free.

Whether you are renovating a rustic farmhouse or an industrial loft, concrete countertops are one of the most popular and cost-effective alternatives, fast outpacing granite as the countertop of choice. Countertops are one of the most used areas of the kitchen, with constant exposure to staining, (ie: red wine, coffee, oil and lemon). Using a concrete countertop sealer will combat these issues and help to protect the countertop from everyday spills. You will want to reseal your concrete countertops every six months to one year since abrasive cleaners and every day use can damage the sealer.

Take it one step further and use a concrete wax in conjunction with a concrete countertop sealer to add an additional wear layer of protection from scratching, staining and heat. Or if you are looking to take the natural finish of your concrete countertop up a notch use a countertop wax to deeper colors and increase the sheen.

Wax countertops monthly once sealed to protect and beautify the surface finish while enhancing the sealer beneath.

Care and Maintenance Tips:

  • Wax monthly, or more frequently in higher use areas
  • Seal countertops every 6 months - 2 years depending on use
  • Use cutting boards 
  • Clean up spills quickly 
  • Stay away from abrasive cleaners

Stay away from abrasive cleaners: Clean sealed and waxed countertops with mild soap and water. No citrus of vinegar based products should be used. (Organic does not always mean mild and can include citrus ingredients that you’ll want to avoid.
