Daily cleaning is one of the keys to keeping natural stone looking great. If you’re new to stone care and aren’t sure how to clean granite and other types of natural stone such as marble, sandstone, travertine, and slate, proper stone care begins with choosing the right cleaning products, and Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® is considered among the best. Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® can be used to safely clean all natural-stone surfaces, and it’s ideal for highly frequent use. Here’s everything you need to know about using Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® for natural-stone care.

The Right Formula for Your Stone Surfaces

The problem with most of the household cleaners found on supermarket shelves these days is that they contain ingredients that will eventually damage natural-stone counters and flooring. Some of these ingredients include ammonia and citric acids that remove the protective surface seal, penetrate the stone, and create chemical reactions that could result in etching and staining. With highly porous stone such as marble, onyx, and sandstone, the damage is often immediate and may require expensive repairs. The proprietary formula of Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® doesn’t contain high pH, corrosive, or abrasive ingredients that can compromise the seal, and its fresh citrus fragrance isn’t acidic.

How to Use Granite Gold Daily Cleaner®

The nozzles of Granite Gold® bottles have spray and stream settings. A stream is better for cleaning floors and loosening spills that may have become crusted. Spraying is more adequate for regular cleaning of countertops and vertical surfaces such as shower walls. The nozzle should be positioned six to eight inches away from the surface on the spray setting for maximum coverage. To get a foaming action on vertical tiles, the nozzle is equipped with directional tabs. A lint-free cloth or paper towel can be used to wipe the surfaces, which should be completely dried off.

Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® Advantages

As long as your natural stone is sealed, frequent cleaning with Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® prevents staining and discoloration. Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® is biodegradable and non-toxic, which means it’s safe to use on food preparation surfaces. Wearing gloves is optional, and you can also use the spray on ceramic and laminate materials. Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® is the first product you should use prior to sealing or polishing. You don’t have to worry about splashing on metal or glass because its formulation won’t damage those materials.

Beyond Daily Cleaning

While Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® is the product you’ll be using most frequently, you shouldn’t forget about sealing and polishing, two very important aspects of caring for natural stone. Other Granite Gold® products you can use on natural stone include Granite Gold Sealer® and Granite Gold Polish®.

To make sure you always have enough Granite Gold Daily Cleaner® on-hand, make sure to purchase a granite daily cleaner refill. If you have additional questions or concerns about caring for natural stone, contact the Stone Care Experts at Granite Gold® today at 1-800-475-STONE (7866).
