Don't Take Your Granite For Granted - Remove Surface Stains And Scratches From Your Kitchen Countertop

If you have a granite countertop in your kitchen and visible stains and scratches are diminishing its beauty, restore the condition of the granite by completing the steps below. Once the granite has been cleaned and repaired, maintain the granite surface with some basic steps:

Supplies

  • bucket of warm water
  • mild detergent
  • wooden stick
  • sponge
  • lint-free cloths
  • baking soda
  • water
  • cup
  • spoon
  • plastic wrap
  • granite cleaning agent

Briefly Clean The Granite And Apply A Homemade Poultice

Fill a bucket with warm water. Add a small amount of detergent to the water. Use your hand or a wooden stick to blend the detergent with the water. Once suds appear, dip a sponge into the cleaning mixture. Wipe the granite countertop's surface with the sponge to remove loose particles. Use warm water to dampen a lint-free cloth. Wipe the cloth over the granite surface. Move a clean, dry cloth over the countertop when finished.

Add equal amounts of baking soda and water to a cup. Stir the ingredients until they are a creamy consistency. Apply an even amount of the mixture to stains on the counter's surface. Cover the homemade poultice with a piece of plastic wrap. The plastic wrap will prevent the poultice from shifting and will prevent the baking soda and water mixture from drying out.

Eliminate Stains And Maintain The Granite

After a few hours have passed, use a damp sponge to eliminate the homemade poultice from the granite. Rinse the sponge out as needed until the baking soda and water mixture has been eliminated. Dry the countertop's surface with a clean cloth. Add a few drops of a granite cleaning agent to another cloth and wipe the cloth across stains that are on the counter. Press the cloth firmly as you treat each stain. Pour more of the granite cleaning agent onto the cloth if the stains do not respond to the initial treatment.

Once the stains have been eliminated, use a cloth that has been dampened with water to remove any traces of the cleaning agent that remain. Dry the counter's surface by wiping it off with a fresh cloth. Maintain the condition of the granite countertop by eliminating spills or stains as soon as they become apparent. Avoid using abrasive cleaning tools or products to treat the granite surface. Basic maintenance steps will preserve the countertop and prevent the need to complete extensive repairs or cleaning steps.
