What to clean granite with to make it shine?
To clean granite and make it shine, mix together three parts baking soda and one part warm water. Apply a thin layer of the paste to your granite surface and gently buff with a clean cloth. Wipe away any residue with a damp cloth and dry the granite for a smooth, shiny finish.
How do you deep clean a granite countertop?
The best way to deep clean a granite countertop is to mix equal parts of isopropyl alcohol and distilled water in a spray bottle. Thoroughly spray the countertop and allow the solution to sit for 2 to 3 minutes. Wipe down with a washcloth.
How often does granite need to be sealed?
The frequency with which you need to seal your granite countertop depends on how quickly the stone absorbs water. If the granite surface immediately takes in most of the water and develops a dark mark or ring, you will need to seal it once every few months. If it takes a few minutes for your stone countertop to soak up all the water, you will only need to seal it once every year.
Does baking soda clean granite?
Yes, baking soda is an effective and gentle cleaner for granite surfaces. To remove oil-based stains, mix baking soda and water to form a paste, then apply it to the affected area. Wipe away the paste with a clean, damp cloth.
