Care and Cleaning

For Granite and Stone Countertops

  • Have Bullnosing and Shaping seal your stone to help prevent staining.
  • Spray a mild neutral, non-rinse stone cleaner on the surface of the stone and wipe clean with a small cloth towel. Clean as often as you need to.
  • For dried on foods, let the cleaner soften the foods, and then wipe as usual. You can also use a stiff edge plastic tool or utensil. Do not use metal tools.
  • For heavy oil residue, apply two drops of dish soap to a wet sponge and wipe clean. Follow up with the non-rinse stone cleaner.
  • After cleaning, apply stone enhancer and polish for added shine and protection.
  • Cover stone when using acidic liquids on marble, limestone and travertine.
  • Hot pans can be set directly on stone. If any dulling or clouding is noticed, call Bullnosing and Shaping.
  • Cutting with knives on granite is ok. Marble and limestone will scratch. If scratches are noticed on granite, stop cutting and use a cutting board. Cutting boards are recommended for most situations.
  • Do not stand or sit on counter tops and overhangs.
  • Schedule routine professional cleaning and sealing as recommended.
  • Contact Bullnosing and Shaping with any questions or comments about stone care.
