How To Clean Granite Worktops

Granite Cleaning with e-cloth

You don’t need specialist cleaners to clean your granite – just use e-cloth and water.

Cleaning Granite Worktops

The secret to getting a perfect streak-free finish is to use a damp Granite Cloth, where excess water has been wrung out, and finish with a dry Glass & Polishing Cloth. If the cloth is too wet, moisture residue does not evaporate quickly and the granite may not be left streak-free.

How to clean:

  • Spray the granite with water or use the Granite Cloth to dampen the surface.
  • Use the ribbed side of the Granite Cloth for an initial clean, followed by the smooth side.
  • Simply finish it off with a dry Glass & Polishing Cloth, for a perfect streak-free finish.

It can be a good idea to fold the Glass & Polishing Cloth and use it as a pad. This ensures good contact with the surface and gives you a number of dry areas of the cloth to use.

Sealing Granite

As granite ages, it will benefit from re-sealing. The easiest way to check if your granite needs re-sealing is by splashing some water on it. If the water beads up then the surface is sealed. If it doesn’t and the water gradually soaks into the surface, then you should re-seal your worktops before cleaning – this is obviously particularly important if you are considering using specialist cleaning liquids, rather than e-cloth!
