Which chemicals to use on your Granite Worktops?

Store-bought products usually are too harsh of Granite worktops. Therefore, a homemade version is more advised.

The best way to do this is to fill your sink up with warm, clean water and mix it with a mild detergent. Next, add a small amount of rubbing alcohol for antiseptic and cleaning properties. Once this is achieved, allow the solution to cool down slightly.

For the most optimal cleaning, make sure that you do not use any vinegar, ammonia, or lemon cleaners on your Granite Worktops. Granite is a robust material but acidic substances may eat away at the surface. Lemon and vinegar in particular are more acidic which is less advisable for cleaning your worktops.
