Here's a few tips:
1. To sanitize, create your own 200 ppm bleach solution. Remove organic residue from your countertop, spray on your bleach solution and allow it to air dry. If this leaves streaks, try wiping around after you spray on your bleach solution but still air dry. If this still leaves streaks, after you've sprayed on your bleach solution, wait two minutes and use a rubber squeegee like dcarch recommended. If you don't have time for it to air dry or can't wait two minutes, use a 500 ppm bleach solution. BY USING YOUR OWN HOMEMADE SOLUTION FROM CLOROX BLEACH AND FOLLOWING THE TIMES ABOVE, YOU ARE ENSURING SANITATION AND NOT INTRODUCING CHEMICALS ASIDE FROM WATER AND A BIT OF BLEACH.
2. If you continue to use bleach and the windex, ensure the bleach solution isn't too concentrated and that it has dried completely before spraying windex. Bleach and Windex produce harmful gases when combined.
3. When making your own bleach solution, ensure you note that modern bleach is now typically 8%; your instructions may follow the old concentration of 5.25%. Also, ensure you make a new bleach solution daily, especially for your type of use.
