    How do you care for granite?


    How much care do granite products require and how can I clean them safely and effectively in a way that won't cause damage?

    "Hi there,

    To clean granite, you can use warm water and mild soap. Then, dry the granite with a microfibre towel.
    To seal granite (every two years), you can purchase Lithofin stain stop online. Then, you can embed a cloth into this liquid and rub it throughout the granite surface. Please leave it to dry for twelve hours.
    Granite is highly heat resistant, although we recommend using a trivet to place hot items from the oven to avoid thermal shock on the granite's surface.

    I hope this helps!

    "Soap and water or a good glass cleaner is perfectly fine to clean granite worksurfaces as far as taking care of it every so often maybe every couple of years it would be good to reseal your kitchen worktops with a granite sealer you can find these online"
