Stone Care

In most cases, a non-abrasive soft soap, such as a few drops of mild antibacterial dishwashing detergent and warm waterwith water, is enough to keep your natural stone looking like new. Always use a non-scratch or delicate scrub pad. Afterwards, rinse the surface thoroughly with clean water and dry with a soft cloth to remove residue.

With stubborn stains or dried spills, apply a non-abrasive household cleaner to remove residue, then rinse. Adhered material such as food, gum, nail polish or dried paint will required to first scrape away excess material with a plastic putty knife and then using a damp cloth to remove any marks or residual dirt. Extra-stubborn stains may also require a no-scratch pad. There are soap products specifically formulated to clean your natural stone available at most stone suppliers.

Although stone is somewhat heat resistant it can be damaged by sudden and rapid temperature changes; hot pots and pans should never be placed on the surface without a hot pad or trivet.

Natural stone is also highly scratch resistant surface; however avoid abuse of the surface by refraining from using sharp objects such as sharp knives directly onto the surface.

Do not use vinegar, lemon juice or any foods or cleaners containing acids on polished or honed marble surfaces. Do not leave acidic or oil based products on your stone for any period of time as it will etch the surface.
