Caring for Your Granite
Granite is different than marble when it comes to its recommended usage and its care and maintenance. The first thing you need to know is that granite is a much harder stone than marble, and granite usually does not etch. (However we are now starting to see that some of the granites that are used today can etch from acidic items being spilled on the surface.)
Granite can be cleaned using the same process as marble. For granite we recommend cleaning the surface using a quality stone safe neutral stone cleaner.
