White granite is a naturally occurring stone that is a popular material for counter tops, floors, sinks, tubs and many other items. It is extremely durable and provides an attractive look to any decor. Traditional cleaning products should never be applied to white granite as they will etch the surface. A mild cleaning of the granite surface is all that is required for proper care. White granite must be cleaned more frequently than other granite surfaces because it shows stains easier.
Things You'll Need
- Non-abrasive sponge
- Stone cleaner
Dampen a non-abrasive sponge with hot water from a faucet.
Wipe the entire surface of the granite with the sponge to remove crumbs and liquid. Rinse the sponge frequently with fresh water as you clean.
Spray the entire surface of the white granite with a light layer of stone cleaner at least once per week. Clean it more frequently if the granite gets a lot of use.
Wipe the sponge over the stone cleaner to scrub away any dried-on stains that are on the white granite.The cleaner also disinfects the granite by killing viruses and bacteria.
Wipe the surface of white granite with a clean, dry towel to remove all moisture.
Tips & Warnings
- Always seal white granite with a stone sealant solution to prevent the formation of stains.
- Do not set metal objects directly on the white granite as rust rings will form. Place all metal objects into a glass or plastic tray.
- Always use trivets when placing any hot object on a white granite counter top to prevent scorch marks.
- Wipe up all spills as soon as they occur to prevent them from staining the white granite.
