Your natural stone countertops are one of the most beloved items in your home. As we know, since each and every slab of marble, granite and quartzite are unique, it’s like having a work of art.

Keeping your granite countertops clean is important to keep them looking great. It’s best to have a dedicated product that can you know will do the job right. Some blogs recommend just using soap and water to clean your countertops, however, it just doesn’t do the best job at removing messes that could potentially stain your counters permanently. Using soap and water on your granite counter would be like washing your hair without shampoo – it’s not getting the job done right.
You need a specific granite cleaner like AGM Daily Granite Cleaner to ensure that your adored kitchen countertops will keep their luster for years to come. After each and every use of your granite or marble countertops, they should be cleaned for the sake of their preservation. The kitchen and bathroom often see items that can destroy your counters if exposed, even for a short period of time. Food preparation can create quite a mess and if these juices or oils are not removed with a stone cleaner, they can leave stains that will be irremovable. The areas sink the areas around your D-Shape sink can build up lots of grime from simple daily use. When multiple days go by without any cleaning, a devastating layer of filth can build up.
Using the AGM Daily Granite Cleaner is a quick and easy process. Start by clearing your countertop of all appliances, decorations, or other objects so you have access the whole countertop. Then spray a generous amount of AGM Daily Granite Cleaner on the surface and let it rest for 15 seconds. After letting the cleaner set, wipe it away with a paper towel or clean, dry cloth.
For high traffic areas, such as near the stove or next to your D-Shape sink may require a little more attention. After just a few minutes, your counters will gleam like the first day they were installed. Preserving the beauty of your marble or granite counters has never been easier with AGM Daily Granite Cleaner. When this granite cleaner is used regularly, you can keep your countertops looking as beautiful as the day you got them for a lifetime.
The AGM Daily Granite cleaner, available at MrStone.com, will not only clean your countertops, it also contains a small amount of sealer.
So what exactly is a countertop sealer? A sealer is a simple liquid that you apply to your countertops. It works by filling in the pores of your stone with a resin that prevents stains from penetrating into the natural surface. The Superior Zero Ultimate Stone Protector that is available at MrStone.com, will be able to protect your natural stone countertops from spills of acidic liquids, like wine, and harmful kitchen chemicals, like drain cleaner. If either of these were to be split and left on your marble or granite they would leave unsightly marks that would require a stain remover.
All natural stones have varying porosities whether it is granite, marble, travertine, onyx, or any other natural stone countertop. Though your stone looks smooth, it actually has tiny pockets throughout, which liquid can get trapped in, causing discoloration. When something spills on your kitchen countertop—red wine, for instance—it can stain the stone if not wiped up immediately. The longer you let it sit, the more likely the stain is to cause permanent damage to your granite counters.
