In order to protect your countertops, please follow these recommendations for the care and maintenance of your natural granite:


  • Clean with warm water and mild detergent or with 3 in 1 cleaner / polish for natural stone sold at most Lowe’s and Home Depot stores
  • Rinse & dry surfaces after cleaning to prevent milky appearance
  • Blot up spills immediately
  • Reapply stone sealer to surface as soon as you notice that liquids will no longer stand on the surface (approximately once a year)
  • Use antibacterial cleaners made for natural stone in food preparation areas


Don’t use abrasive cleaners like Comet, Ajax or Soft Scrub

Don’t use bathroom cleaners, grout cleaners or tub and tile cleaners that typically contain acid

Don’t use cleaners that contain vinegar or lemon juice

Don’t sit or stand on countertops

Don’t cut directly on your countertops (We suggest that you use a cutting board)

Don’t put hot pots and pans directly on your countertops (We suggest that you use a hot pad or trivet)
