Best Countertop for Messy People
What is the best countertop material for those of us who are not tidy?
Despite my best efforts, I'm a messy cook. I have small children who like to "help." It is not unusual for spaghetti sauce, drops of soapy water, or juice to sit on my countertop overnight.
Nor do I do monthly or quarterly maintenance. Even if I put handy e-reminders into my calendar and email myself, I won't be oiling countertops.
I currently have laminate and have managed to stain that this past week with Gatorade. Prior homes have had tile (grout, ugh) and wood (stained that too).
Any suggestions? I'm considering serpentine, slate, and walnut butcherblock because at least I could fix that if I stain it.
I don't particularly like granite.
