Step by step guide on taking care of granite countertops.

Granite countertops are a beautiful addition to any kitchen, but they do require some maintenance to keep them looking their best. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to take care of your granite countertops:

  1. Clean spills immediately: Wipe up spills as soon as they happen to prevent staining. Use a soft cloth and mild soap or a granite cleaner to clean the spill.

  2. Use coasters: Use coasters under glasses and cups to prevent water rings on the countertop.

  3. Avoid acidic substances: Avoid using acidic substances such as vinegar, lemon juice, and acidic cleaners as they can etch the surface of the granite.

  4. Use cutting boards: Use a cutting board when cutting food to prevent scratches on the countertop.

  5. Seal the granite: Apply a sealer to the granite once a year to protect it from stains and to keep it looking its best. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application.

  6. Avoid heavy objects: Avoid placing heavy objects on the countertop as they can cause cracks or chips.

  7. Use a trivet: Use a trivet under hot pots and pans to prevent heat damage to the countertop.

  8. Clean regularly: Clean the countertop regularly with a soft cloth and mild soap or a granite cleaner to keep it looking its best.

  9. Use a poultice: If a stain does occur, use a poultice to remove it. Mix a paste of baking soda and water and apply it to the stain. Cover it with plastic wrap and leave it for 24 hours. Then, remove the plastic wrap and wipe away the paste.

By following these steps, you can keep your granite countertops looking beautiful for years to come.
