“Should I Use Special Granite Cleaner For My Countertops?”
What you read about granite cleaner can be misleading and vastly overstated. Cleaning granite countertops should only be done with specialized cleaners, not Windex or ammonia and never plain soapy water. The best performing product I’ve found and use in my granite countertop company is MB-5 Marble, Granite and More Spray Cleaner from MB Stone. We have provided this to all our customers as part of a stone care kit when we install a new countertop and when we show them how to clean granite.
You should clean your counters daily using a specialty product for stone, such as MB-5. Use it full strength on the cooking and eating areas. Use it diluted in a proportion of 1:1 with water in lighter duty areas. If you’re concerned about disinfecting (after handling raw poultry, vegetable, etc.), use MB Stone MB-15, Stone Cleaner/Disinfectant. You can occasionally “brighten-up” your shiny countertop, with MB-13, Polished Stone Dressing. All its components are rated “food-grade”.
Do not use products that contain lemon, vinegar, or other acids on marble or other calcium based stones. Do not use scouring powders or creams; these products contain abrasives that may scratch the stone.
