Cleaning your natural stone is an important part of caring for your countertops. The installation of natural stone is an investment that you want to last a long time. There are some things you must remember when you are caring for them. Keep them in tiptop shape by following these few Do’s and Don’ts.
The Do's and Don'ts
Cleaning your natural stone countertops can be done with a simple solution of soap and water. Soap and water is fine to use daily, but there are some soaps that can actually harm your stone. Stay away from acidic soaps that contain lemon or other citrus liquids. If you feel like soap and water is not doing it’s job and want something a little stronger, you want to ensure that you are using the best quality countertop cleaner available. We recommend using our Daily Countertop Cleaner and our other stone care products to maintain and extend the life of your granite and marble countertops that might be featured in your kitchen or other home designs.

Some natural stone is very durable but they are not resistant to cracks. Do NOT drop heavy objects on your stone. You don’t want your beautiful countertops to chip or crack. If you are laying heavy pots and pans on the surface, you still want to lay it on top of something to protect the stone. Regardless of how strong the stone may be, you still want to be careful.
