A granite kitchen countertop is a beautiful and classic piece that elevates any kitchen. The elegant material requires specialized maintenance in order to keep it clean and preserve the sealer that prevents staining and scratches. This video will demonstrate how you properly clean a granite countertop.
Make sure you don’t use abrasive chemical cleaners like Windex, 409, or Kaboom. They’re highly acidic and will remove a layer of sealer every time you use them. This will make your countertop vulnerable to staining and scratches.
Don’t use highly acidic natural cleaners like lime or vinegar, either. Start with regular dish soap and water, and make sure to use a soft kitchen cloth. If you do this every day, you will keep your granite countertop fresh and clean for a long time.
Make sure you also use cutting boards and heat pads to keep your stone beautiful. You can also use coasters, though that’s less necessary. Granite isn’t as sensitive as wood. You can also use isopropyl alcohol mixed with water to get a deeper clean. This will preserve the countertop’s beautiful sheen and the countertop will also be disinfected.
