Deep Cleaning

To achieve a beautiful shine on your worktops, it’s important to ensure they are completely clear of any spills before cleaning. While it may be difficult to avoid spills and liquid on your worktops, it’s always advised that you try to do so. If a spill does occur, be sure to clean it up promptly. A wet rag can help to remove residue, but it’s not always effective if the spill has dried.

In addition to spills, it’s also important to clean up general kitchen food crumbs and other debris. A wet rag can be used to clean up these crumbs, and warm soapy water can help to catch any leftovers that may be lying on the worktop. By keeping your worktops clean and clear, you can maintain their shine and appearance for years to come.

Cleaning Tips

Homemade cleaning solutions are often more suitable for Granite worktops than store-bought products, which can be too harsh for this natural stone.

To create an effective homemade cleaner, start by filling your sink with warm, clean water and adding a mild detergent. Then, mix in a small amount of rubbing alcohol for its antiseptic and cleaning properties. Allow the solution to cool down slightly before use.

For optimal care of your Granite Worktops, it’s crucial to avoid cleaners that contain vinegar, ammonia, or lemon. Although Granite is a durable material, these acidic substances can potentially damage the surface. Lemon and vinegar, being particularly acidic, are not recommended for cleaning granite worktops as they might erode or dull the stone’s finish over time.

The most recommended cloth to use would be a microfiber cloth. They are ideal for cleaning your Granite worktop as they are less likely to leave any fibres behind. Ensure that you soak your cloth in the cleaning product that you are using but remove any excess water before using.

It is advisable to run your hand over the worktop before cleaning to remove any stains or debris that you cannot sometimes see. A microfiber cloth is also used to keep the worktop dry before any product streaks show that they are dry.
