Disinfect Your Kitchen Counter in Six Simple Steps

Somehow you managed to stain your new granite kitchen countertop. You didn’t invest in a beautiful, new kitchen countertop so you could grimace every time you cook, spill or look at it.

Fortunately, Cleaning a Granite Countertop Is Straightforward and You Don’t Need Any Special Products to Get Your Countertop Shining Once Again.

To restore your granite countertop to its original, stainless state, follow these easy steps:

  1. Take your dishcloth and soak it in warm, soapy, water.
  2. Wipe down the countertop.
  3. Dry the counter with a microfiber or any other soft dry cloth.
  4. Disinfect with a mixture of isopropyl alcohol and water - about a 50-50 mix.
  5. Spray the mixture on the counter and wait a few minutes.
  6. Rinse with water and dry.

Voila! Your granite counter should be returned to its former glory.

You’ve restored your countertop to how it should be. Now take steps to prevent stains in the future:

• When you have a spill, wipe it up immediately

• Avoid using harsh abrasives like bleach or ammonia as they will wear down the sealant

• Frequently check your counter to see if the sealant is still secure: if water soaks into the granite top, you need it
