How to clean Granite…

Countertops:

First, always try warm water and a soft cloth or sponge…with granite, simple is always best. Allow caked-on food to soak a while prior to cleaning. Most spills, crumbs, sauces, and other things should be easily removed this way. If not then add a small amount of dishwashing liquid to your warm water. Rinse well with lots of clean water as any soap can leave a film on your counters. *be sure to stay away from harsh powders and scrubbers as these will not only stain but scratch your granite*

Difficult Stains:

Before you attack those stuck on spills make sure you know what you are dealing with. Is it water based, such as grape juice, or oil based, like salad dressing?

Water-Based:

If the stain is water based, pour hot water on the  and let stand for a few minutes then wipe away the water. Then stack 1/4 in of paper towels on the stain and saturate with hot water. Cover with a piece of plastic (such a plastic wrap) and a flat heavy weight (like a cast iron skillet or a book) And allow to sit for several hours, great to do before bed. Remove and discard the paper towels and the stain be removed.

Oil-Based:

If the stain is Oil based, follow the same steps as above, but instead of water use room temp acetone (very important not to add heat) After several hours, discard the paper towels and rinse spot with clean water.

**Never scrape or scrub your granite!! Remember it is a stone and will scratch/stain as such. Simple is always best!**
