All About Cleaning for Your Natural Stone Countertop

How to Clean Your Natural Stone Countertop

  1. Use mild (neutral Ph) detergents or stone soaps, mixed with warm water, to clean your natural stone countertops. Examples of such products include Ecos Daily Cleaner - Parsley Plus, Mighty Indigo (for more stubborn messes), Dawn Original, and Simple Green.
  2. Use a soft, clean rag, or a microfiber towel to apply the cleaner and wipe the surface.
  3. After cleaning, rinse and dry thoroughly.

Important Cleaning Precautions for Granite, Quartzite, and Marble

  • NEVER allow your countertop to come in contact with drain cleaners, paint strippers, acetone or products containing hydrofluoric acid, ammonia, methylene chloride, trichloroethylene, or any product with a very high or very low Ph level.
  • DO NOT allow spills to sit on the stone - clean up right away.
  • DO NOT wipe up stains – instead, blot up spills that may cause staining, so you do not further spread the problem area.
  • DO NOT put hot pots or pans directly on the countertop surface. Sudden or rapid change of temperature, especially near edges and cutouts, may create enough thermal expansion to cause your countertop to crack. Simply place hot pads, trivets, or potholders underneath hot pots and pans and your countertop will be completely protected.
