How to Remove Greasy Film on Granite Countertops


A greasy film on your countertop can take away the luster, and sometimes make it a bit sticky. Several products claim to clean stone, but no one product can clean every stain on every surface. Granite is porous; watch what chemicals you put onto it. Some harsher chemicals may clean your countertop, but as they soak into the granite, they begin to break down the molecules that hold the granite together.

Things You'll Need

  • Made-for-stone soap
  • Rag or sponge
  • Ammonia
  • Spray bottle
  • Using made-for-stone soap and warm water, clean the area with a sponge or rag.

  • Mix one part ammonia and three parts water in a spray bottle.

  • Wipe down the counter with the ammonia mixture.

  • Allow the counter to air dry.

Tips & Warnings

  • Nothing will replace the made-for-stone soap for keeping your granite counter clean.
