How To CleanGranite

Granite needs a little TLC to keep looking so gorgeous. So steer clear of abrasive cleaners, which can dull its finish, and use Pine-Sol® to gloss up and clean your granite.



Brush or sweep away dust, dirt or food crumbs.


Dilute ¼ cup of Pine-Sol® in a gallon of warm water.


Wipe down granite with a sponge or mop soaked in the solution.


Scrub stubborn stains with full strength Pine-Sol®. Use a cleaning brush or plastic scrub pad rather than a harsh scouring pad, which can scratch unsealed granite.


Wipe down with water using a microfiber cloth to keep your granite streak-free.

Remember to wipe up spills on unsealed granite floors as soon as possible, and to reseal your granite countertops as recommended by your installation care guide.

What Your Mama
Taught You

“I've used all the high-end granite counter cleaners, and NONE clean as well nor add the sparkle to my home like diluted Pine-Sol. Amazing! Works great when misted onto wood floors and dry mopped, too!”

A Job Well Done

After tackling a really tough cleaning job, whether it’s dirty grout or a furry fridge, reward yourself with something you love, like a CD by your favorite artist or a new book.

Ditch the List

Tired of to-do lists and organization charts? Try cleaning the first three things you see. Maybe it’s the hair on the bathroom sink, the dust on the living room bookshelf or the traces of last night’s dinner on the kitchen counter. Then, stop cleaning! You’ll conquer the messes that bother you most without a formal battle plan.
