How To Clean Granite Worktops?

Let’s face it, granite isn’t cheap but it is an amazing investment for your home. Those who own granite, more often than not want the worktop and their kitchen to look their best. It’s for this reason that granite care and maintenance is paramount. With a granite worktop looking great, you can guarantee the rest of your kitchen will immediately be elevated, looking just as fantastic. With this in mind we thought we’d put together this post to explain exactly how to clean granite and keep it in tip-top shape.

The Only Way Is Granite’S How To Clean Granite Worktops Guide

The baking soda should absorb any stains straight from your worktop. If that doesn’t work, another trick to try is cornstarch sprinkled directly on top of the stain, covered with plastic. Leave it to work its magic for a few hours and you’ll find the cornstarch sucks the remaining stain right out. These tricks will also work really well for watermarks too, particularly handy for areas with hard water.

1. Clean Your Granite Worktops Daily

When it comes to cleaning granite, a solution of warm water and dish soap is all it needs. Be sure to avoid dish soap that contains acidic additives such as lemon or other citrus scents. Use a soft dish cloth and wipe the worktop down. When you’ve finished wiping them down, dry them with a soft cloth to avoid leaving water sitting on the surface for too long.

2. Buff Your Granite Worktop Regularly

Here at The Only Way Is Granite, our granite worktops are hugely popular throughout Essex for their superb finish but it’s important that you maintain that shine. Buffing your kitchen worktop regularly is important. Use a microfiber cloth combined with a granite polish to make them really shine.

3. Quality Granite Kitchen Worktop Cleaning Methods

When it comes to cleaning granite, you don’t need to purchase speciality cleaners. Simple water and soap will be sufficient. Avoiding the use of beach, ammonia and of course harsh materials such as scour pads is a must and be sure to use things such as cutting boards and placemats when working on or around the worktop.
