Protect Your Families From the Flu Bug and Your Stone From Harmful Disinfectants

San Diego (Nov. 5, 2012) —Household disinfectants are a common staple in most homes, more so during fall and winter months as families try to prevent flu and other contagious viruses.

Yet typical disinfectants, while effective at killing most viruses, pose a threat to natural-stone surfaces – damaging counters, floors, vanities, shower walls and other stone areas, leading to costly repair and replacement. The family of experts who make cleaning and maintaining granite, marble and other natural-stone surfaces in the home quick and easy, however, created a solution to help families protect against the spread of flu and other viruses and from damaging their stone surfaces.

Just in time for flu season, Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes® are the only convenient, disposable wipes that kill germs and will not harm sealed stone surfaces. With 35 wipes per package, they are approved by the U.S. EPA for use on sealed stone surfaces and are also suitable for use on counter tops, sinks, faucets, exterior surfaces of appliances, bathtubs, toilets and showers. They can also be used on doorknobs, glazed tiled floors and children’s toys. Graxnite Gold Disinfecting Wipes are 99.9% effective in killing household bacteria, including influenza A virus, influenza B virus, Salmonella enterica, Staphylococcus aureus and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

“There’s nothing worse than seeing your kids suffer from the flu bug,” said Lenny Sciarrino, president/CEO and co-founder of Granite Gold Inc., and the father of three young children. “Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes help prevent the spread of flu and other contagious viruses, but won’t hurt sealed stone surfaces like common disinfectants do.”

Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes are designed to disinfect, not clean, and any disinfectant is not a substitute for a granite cleaner.  After letting the application sit on the surface for at least five minutes, rinse with potable water and then clean.

Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes are available nationally at participating True Value Hardware and Ace Hardware stores, select Bed Bath & Beyond stores and several regional grocery chains such as Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, Cub Foods, Giant of Carlisle, Giant of Landover and Stop & Shop. Customers can find more information on retail locations online at www.GraniteGold.com, where they can also receive expert advice on how to clean granite and other natural stone by checking out Stone Care 101 or by submitting questions to StoneCareExperts@GraniteGold.com or at Facebook. Suggested retail price is $4.99-$6.99.
