Cleaning granite worktops is as simple as ever

If you are looking for new kitchen worktops that will prove easy to clean, look no further than granite countertops. While it’s not a good idea to cut food straight on this natural stone surface, or place a hot pot directly on these worktops, it’s good to note that they are extremely easy to clean with minimal supplies.

Your stone supplier will probably recommend that you have your granite sealed as soon as it is installed. Regular sealing will also be needed since this sealant does not last forever. By doing so, you prevent substances from penetrating and staining the stone. It also makes for easier cleaning with just water and a sponge or soft cloth. Special granite cleaning solutions are available but if you want to save money or simply prefer natural cleaning methods, water will work just fine.

Remember, even if you have sealed your granite worktops, it is best to clean up any spills immediately. While they might not penetrate the surface of the stone, you can be sure that they will be more difficult to clean as time passes. Since you should never scrub your granite worktops, removing stubborn spills is difficult and time consuming. Save yourself the effort by cleaning up quickly as soon as the spill happens.
