Granite - Care

Product and Cleaning Care:

Each of our product has been created by experts, who know the best ways to keep your Stone looking new.

  1.  Wipe your counter-tops with a soft clean cloth, warm water and some dishwashing liquid.
  2. Clean up spills immediately before they dry.
  3. To remove stains on granite, the method depends on the type of stain. For most stains you can mix a cup of flour, 1-2 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid with water to make a thick paste. Put it on the stain, cover with plastic wrap, and let it sit overnight. Then you can scrape away the mixture with a wooden utensil and rinse.
  4. For oil-stains, use hydrogen peroxide in the paste instead of dishwashing liquid - or try ammonia on it.
  5. For organic stains, mix 12 per cent hydrogen peroxide with a couple drops of ammonia.
  6. For ink or marker stain, use a lacquer thinner or acetone to remove from darker stone. On light-coloured granite, use hydrogen peroxide for these stains
  7. For wine, ink or other non-oil stain: Mix moulding plaster and pure bleach to form a paste and spread over the stain. Leave on for 30 minutes, then remove with a wooden utensil and rinse.
  8. For oil-based or fat-based stain: Paste a mix of moulding plaster and water over the stain. Mould it into a bird's-nest shape and allow to stand for 3 hours. Remove with a wooden utensil and rinse.
  9. Remember to reseal countertops every year or two years. Check with us for recommendations. When resealing use a non-toxic sealer on food preparation areas.
  10. Always use disinfectant cleaner made specifically for granite.
