How to clean granite
Don’t use abrasive cleaners to keep granite surfaces shiny. They may do more damage than good over time, dulling the finish on your beautiful countertops. While granite counters are typically scratch-resistant, granite floors may not be treated with a protective seal, so you’ll want to wipe up spills as soon as they happen to keep oils and liquids from seeping in. Also remember to reseal your granite countertops, as recommended by your installation care guide.
To get granite surfaces clean, first brush or sweep away any dust, dirt or food. Then dilute ¼ cup of Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaner in a gallon of warm water. For sealed granite counters, dampen a soft sponge in the solution and wipe down. For floors, use a mop, and take special care not to leave any dirt behind.
For stubborn stains, apply a full-strength dose and scrub with a cleaning brush or plastic scrub pad; we do not recommend harsh scouring pads. Afterwards, wipe down the counter, workbench or floor with plain water using a microfiber cloth to stay streak-free.
You can also attack germs on bathroom granite with the disinfecting power of Original Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaner. Remember to wipe down with water at the end.
