Hygiene is the most important thing we can provide for our family. That’s why it is essential to clean your granite worktops every week, as they will maintain their shine and sparkle for a longer time.
Quick tip: A strong cleaning solution will do the trick. It removes build-up dust without causing any damage to the surface. Just be careful to avoid cleansers that contain chemical ingredients or bleach.
Take the next steps to ensure the hygiene of your granite worktops:
- At the end of the day when you have finished cooking for your family and other kitchen activities, get a rag and thoroughly clean the surfaces.
- Have a bottle filled with tap water always on standby and use it while cleaning the granite worktops. Use circular motions and do not rush.
- If you encounter tough stains, then use a mixture of water and 1 tablespoon of a pH-neutral stone soap or dish soap. Take your time and watch your worktops sparkle.
Always use a clean soft cloth to dry the surfaces.
You can also try Windex multi-purpose (doesn’t contain ammonia), Mr. Muscles or Fairy (contain sodium hydroxide, ideal for removing burnt-on grease and spills), Dettol Antibacterial Surface Cleanser (disinfects the surface), Talc (sprinkle on the stain before it dries), sanitary alcohol, lemon juice, baking soda, toothpaste, shaving cream etc.
Instead of a rag you can use paper towels or crumbled newspapers.
