How To Clean Granite Countertops
Use pH Neutral Cleaners
Cleaning granite countertops can be a simple task when a few facts are understood. Firstly, always use a pH neutral cleaner for natural stone surfaces and never use hazardous or abrasive chemicals. This would include the use of common household cleaners such as vinegar, bleach-wipes, and ammonia. When cleaning granite, it is also important to stay away from acidic cleaners, which would include anything with lemon or orange.
Using Dish Soap
Many dish soaps are pH neutral and often times consumers will use them to clean kitchen counters. Although dishsoap is safe to use on quartz, marble and granite counters, they require a thorough rinse or will inevitabley start to build-up, leaving a residue behind. This will cause a polished countertop surface to progressivly look cloudy, blurry or grimy.
