Cleaning Granite Countertops

Since we are getting granite in the kitchen, I thought I'd look up efficient ways to clean it. I found a neat site:

The people here all give some good ideas and I thought I'd pass it along to ya'll! One posted response says Ubba Tuba doesn't need sealing. You may want to research this some of you Ubba Tuba granite bloggers!

Enjoy! Happy Reading!


  1. Thanks, this is good information. I have been reading the customer care from the Ryan homes website under countertops but this link gives more of a variety of tips and advice. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I just bought a house with granite countertops and I was wondering if there was a certain way to clean my countertops. Thanks for the great info!

  3. Hi Mackenzie!

    I use Dupont's StoneTech line on Amazon. That's one of them that I use. Their cleaners are good for everyday use and help seal last. Soap and water and good too.

    I do have lighter granite and use a bleach spray when working with raw chicken (cleaning and prep). I don't do it often. It's not something I would recommend for daily use or on darker granite. I am just paranoid about the chicken juices. lol

    The trick it to clean up spills and messes quickly. Event though granite should be sealed, it can still seep through over time.

    Make sure to either get a 10 yr plus sealer or to real seal your granite every year.

    Don't bang things on it! Yes it's stone and it's hard, but it can and will chip and/or break!

    I do love that I can take things right of the oven and place them right on the granite. The stone distributes the heat and it doesn't crack or damage. I also love how it looks! lol

    Hope that helps! If you have any other questions, let me know!
