Unfortunately, granite sealer can be damaged by most common household cleaners including vinegar, bleach wipes, and anything containing lemon or orange. Once this happens your granite can become stained by a range of substances including ketchup, cooking oil, cosmetics, and superglue. This is why it is important to learn how to clean granite properly.

How to clean granite

When cleaning granite, avoid products that are acidic or abrasive including most cleaners from your grocery store and homemade cleaners that contain vinegar, ammonia, or citrus because these will impair the surface of your polished granite over time.

Instead, always use a pH neutral cleaner like Supreme Surface Granite Cleaner & Conditioner that is specifically formulated for cleaning natural stone. Other pH neutral cleaners such as mild dish soaps will build-up, leaving behind a residue that causes your granite to look cloudy, blurry, or grimey.

To clean your granite, begin by blotting up any spill as soon as it happens--acids in foods like soy sauce, wine, and fruit juice will wear away at your granite sealer if left to sit.

Next, use a slightly damp cloth or sponge to remove crumbs and bits of dirt.

Then, simply spray your granite with Supreme Surface Granite Cleaner & Conditioner and buff with the included microfiber cloth. The microfiber helps lift away excess liquids from the surface leaving behind a streak free shine.

Don’t just clean granite, condition it

Supreme Surface Granite Cleaner & Conditioner has the added benefit of a penetrating conditioner that fills the pores in your granite, forming a protective barrier. This proprietary system, called ioSeal, will leave your polished granite countertops with a smoother texture and mirror-like finish.
