Clean granite regularly with warm soap and water or
a white vinegar and water mixture. On marble, never
use vinegar, citric acids, or other acids to clean the
surface, as the surface will etch and the polish removed.
Marble polish can be applied to counter tops periodically
to renew the glossy finish.
Marble and granite polishes may be found at tile supply
stores or at some hardware stores.
Clean up spills immediately to prevent absorption into
granite and marble.
Use a sealer on counter tops to prevent staining.
Sealers may be purchased at tile supply stores and
some hardware stores. Sealers will need to be reapplied
periodically depending on the type that is purchased.
