So it seems Barkeepers Friend, which came recommended by the store where I purchased this countertop,has now ruined the finish of my countertop. I have a white quartz countertop and I'm the spots where we used BKF, I see what looks like a bleach stain. Any way to remedy this or am I stuck with it?
I will call the store but am wondering if anyone has expert advice.

Try posting on Houzz.com forum as people there are extremely knowledgable in terms of dealing with all kinds of issues.

I have read numerous threads in which specific advice was given regarding damage to counters - quartz; marble, granite.

I am surprised the store recommended BF frankly though. I just finished a remodel and I got cleaning stuff specifically recommended for my counters. I purged anything that could be potentially be misused. Abrasive and bleaching products are specifically NOT recommended for quartz.

If the store recommended BF and it caused damage, I would firmly ask them to solve the problem.

In the future stock your home with products specifically meant for quartz. I don't have any products that could damage anything. I even got special toilet bowl cleaner that was safe for any surface. I got rid of Windex as well.

Oh gosh! It's definitely not used on stone, only porcelain (and enamel and metals). Sad
