    "Hi there,

    You can buy this product inexpensively, online.
    Follow these steps :

    Apply and evenly distribute Lithofin MN Power-Clean diluted up to 1:10 and wipe the surface.
    In case of stubborn dirt deposits, apply undiluted or diluted up to 1:5 with a brush and distribute.
    Allow the product to work for approx. 15 minutes; brush occasionally.
    Do not allow to dry; add water if necessary.
    Brush again before wiping up. On large areas, use a squeegee to remove the product.
    Wash the surface thoroughly with clean water. If the result is not satisfying, repeat the process allowing the product to work longer and
    brushing more vigorously.

    I hope it helps."

    "Hi .. Clean stone surfaces with a neutral cleaner, stone soap, or a mild liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Similar to any item cleaned in your home, an excessive concentration of cleaner or soap may leave a film and cause streaks"
