-- Universal Stone, a company that fabricates and installs granite in and around Bloomington, has suggestions for people on how to best remove stains from granite countertops.
Granite is one of the most popular countertop options out there. Many residents of the Twin Cities have chosen this natural stone as their choice for new counters. Granite is generally easy to care for, but staining is possible. The experts at Universal Stone would like to share some easy tips on caring for your granite countertops.
If your granite has a water stain on it, use a non-acidic detergent on it. Gently scrub the granite with a brush with soft bristles with a little bit of the detergent. Then rinse it with water.
More stubborn stains can be removed using a paste made out of baking soda and water. You should also use a soft bristled brush to gently scrub the stain and then rinse it with plenty water.
Universal Stone also suggests getting a poultice that has been specifically made to scrub granite counters. They also suggest that resealing your granite counters might be a good idea to help with stain prevention. The type of granite you have, plus the manufacturer’
s recommendation, should be taken into consideration before you have the granite resealed.
