CLEANING YOUR NATURAL STONE COUNTER TOPS

Clean stone counter tops with a mild soap such as Ivory Liquid or an approved stone soap such as “Dupont StoneTech KlenzAll” available here at our company and other retail stores. Use a clean lint free soft cloth for best results. You may use a nylon scrubber sponge with water the remove dried on soap film, hard water film, dried egg, bread crumbs, etc. Too much cleaner or soap may leave a film and cause streaks so rinse your counter tops with clean water after using any cleaner and paper towel dry. 

TIPS TO BETTER COUNTERTOPS

Do not use products that contain lemon, vinegar or other acids that will strip the stone sealant and cause damage to softer stones such as marble or limestone. Rinse the surface thoroughly after washing with clean warm water and dry with a soft lint free cloth. Never use scouring powders, liquids or scouring creams as these products contain abrasives that can harm the surface. 

Seal your natural stone countertops. Natural stone counter tops need to have a penetrating sealer applied 3 to 4 times a year for maximum results. We recommend “Dupont StoneTech Impregnator Pro Sealer” available here at our company and other retail stores. Use cutting boards when slicing bread, meats, or vegetables to protect your knifes from becoming dull and to protect the stone from scratching and chipping! Never use a thick paint like sealer such as Duroloc as this doe's not allow the stone to breath trapping in moisture, bacteria, mold spores, etc.

Always use plastic or wood cutting boards when slicing bread, meats, or vegetables to protect your knifes from becoming dull and to protect the stone from scratching and chipping!


MARBLE / LIMESTONE / TRAVERTINE

Spills should be wiped up immediately, coasters should be placed under beverages to avoid staining and etching. These stones are especially susceptible to damage from citric acids, alcohols, and oils. Please understand, Marble and Limestone will show noticeable wear and look weathered, this is part of its charm. With proper care it's beauty will last forgenerations, no two pieces are exactly alike. Both have a softer, less stain-resistant surface than granite and should be treated like a fine piece of wood.
