Looking for granite kitchen worktops?
Taking Care of Your New Worktop
Regularly clean your surfaces with a damp cloth and dry-off worktops to avoid dull patches appearing where hard water and soap residues may have been left behind during daily use. A light neutral detergent may be safely added.
Drainer grooves can be cleaned using 000 grade, non-oiled wire wool but always avoid the use of abrasive cleaners or scour pads .
Glass and stainless steel cleaning cloths do a good job of leaving granite smear free and a household spray polish, such as Mr Sheen can be applied to surfaces to clean and maintain the surface shine.
Avoid the use of abrasive and strong detergent cleaners and avoid contact with edges of work-surfaces as chipping may otherwise occur as granite, and particularly marble, are porous materials even when the surfaces and edges have been polished. Do not expose your granite worktop to excessive heat.
The stone is treated before leaving the factory to help resist staining. Be mindful therefore of acidic and spirit based products such as wine, fruits and perfume. Care should also be taken with oil based products as these may stain if allowed to soak into the worktop. Should spillage occur, wipe off as soon as possible.
