How to Maintain Granite Counter-Tops

Granite surfaces, though beautiful require a modest amount of care, such as immediate removal of spills of any type, and discretionary use of placemats and coasters.  Cleaning should be done with non-abrasive cleaners or chemicals.  If it is necessary to use a cleaner, use a neutral non-fat, mild detergent without additives or fragrances.  In general, all that is required to maintain the apperance of your polished granite is to wash it frequently with luke-warm, clean potable water.  Wipe with clean soft cloths of cotton-flannel and allow to thoroughly air dry.

Final clneaning may be done using rubbing alcohol and clean potable water mixed at a ratio of 50/50 in a spray bottle, this will help elminate any soap buildup or streaking.  The granite has been sealed with a penetrating sealer, which leaves nothing on the surface to contaminate food.  This sealer will need to be reapplied every two to five years depending on the frequency of cleaning and the types of cleaners used.
