Kitchen Counters

The coun­ters in our new apart­ment get stained if any­thing sits on them for an hour or so! Sat­ur­day night we had fresh straw­ber­ries for dessert, and I did­n’t clean up the bowl imme­di­ate­ly because we had guests over for gam­ing. I had to use bleach to get the red/pink stain up, and that’s stan­dard for ANYTHING that sits.

I have no idea what the coun­ter­tops are made of. I don’t think they’re Formi­ca, because that would be slick and not porous. They are porous, and it’s some kind of man­made some­thing, but I don’t know what it is. Of course, the leas­ing peo­ple aren’t real­ly any help—in fact, they seemed quite sur­prised at the ques­tion about what they’re made of.

I don’t want to keep bleach­ing the coun­ters, so I’d like to find a way to seal them. Any ideas?
