Drawbacks of new countertops :(

lazy_gardensApril 21, 2013

Yes, I know #firstworldproblems but ...

The gaudy granite is where the SO likes to cut bread, and you can't spot the crumbs in with all the flecks of color.

The wood countertops are darkening rapidly (a good thing) but it's really hard to spot most spills. I use cutting sheets for food prep because of the cats wandering through, but there are still sticky spots.

I guess I have to clean more often.

I feel your pain.
I have trouble seeing crumbs on ours as well.
I think it is clean and then rub my hand over it and can feel missed areas.
Still a happy camper anyway :-)
