What do you use to clean your granite counter-tops?

Do you have granite counter-tops?  I have had a few people ask about tips for cleaning granite counter-tops because they can get so streaky, and some people are afraid of cleaning them the wrong way.

We don’t have granite in our kitchen, but my mother-in-law does, so when I was asked to try out Granite Gold, I knew she would be the perfect lady for the job!

They were very generous and send quite a few products for us to test out, which is great because she has more granite in just her kitchen than most people probably have in their whole house. Plus granite in four of the five bathrooms. That is a lot of cleaning to do!

After she had a chance to use some of the products, I asked her how she felt the Granite Gold did on her counter-tops. This is what she told me: “The granite gleams like it is wet after using this stuff. It smells good and doesn’t leave that gritty feeling like the other cleaners.  LOVE IT!!!” 

She also mentioned that the streaking problem that I mentioned above was not an issue. There was no streaking using this stuff. Also, the shower cleaner worked well, she doesn’t have granite or stone in her showers, but it did a great job on the glass doors!

Granite Gold recommends the following regarding caring for the granite in your home:

Granite Gold Daily Cleaner was developed by stone care experts specifically for everyday use to clean your natural stone surfaces without damaging the seal, unlike typical household cleaners. Granite Gold Polish should be used once a week to quickly and safely add shine and luster to your natural stone surfaces. Granite Gold Sealer should be used once or twice a year, depending on how dark your surface is. Lighter-colored stone should be sealed twice a year to protect your natural stone and help prevent damage and staining.

Here is more about the disinfecting wipes….just in time for flu season! 

Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes are the only convenient, disposable wipes that kill germs and will not harm sealed stone surfaces. With 35 wipes per package, they are approved by the U.S. EPA for use on sealed stone surfaces and are also suitable for use on counter tops, sinks, faucets, exterior surfaces of appliances, bathtubs, toilets and showers. They can also be used on doorknobs, glazed tiled floors and children’s toys.

Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes are 99.9% effective in killing household bacteria, including influenza A virus, influenza B virus, Salmonella enterica, Staphylococcus aureus and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes are designed to disinfect, not clean.  After letting the application sit on the surface for at least five minutes, rinse with potable water and then clean.

    As an installer of marble + granite for some time now, I always got the question "What do you use to clean it?" Truth was, I wasn't using ANYTHING... I installed it, and left the jobsite... So, I tried the Granite Gold for a while, and it did okay, but then I was told about these Marblelife cleaners, and my installs have never looked better! Their line of products are actually the only cleaners I use anymore, because they really have everything I need... I use their intercare spray on most stuff, like glass, wood, and even my grill! Their granite cleaner I use simply for the Granite. I use the Mold + Mildew spray for, well... Mold + mildew, and their Maxout I use for my driveway, and patio pavers, and it all does great! ***Oh, and a little trick - Their soap scum remover takes the fingerprints right off of my stainless steel fridge*** Reply
