SAN DIEGO, (July 12, 2011) – Showers, grout and outdoor patios are likely among the most tedious, grime-filled cleaning projects for most households.
When there is stone involved, the family of experts who made caring for granite countertops and other natural-stone surfaces quick and easy is making shower, grout and patio upkeep just as pain free. Granite Gold Grout Cleaner®, Granite Gold Shower Cleaner®, Granite Gold Outdoor Stone Cleaner® and Granite Gold Daily Cleaner Refill® are the newest innovations by stone-care experts Lenny Sciarrino and Lenny Pellegrino, who founded Granite Gold® to give consumers a safe alternative to typical household cleaners, which damage natural-stone surfaces. Sciarrino and Pellegrino grew up in the natural-stone industry and have more than 40 years experience in fabrication and restoration.
The 64-ounce Granite Gold Outdoor Stone Cleaner quickly and safely cleans exterior patios and decks without damaging natural stone. Easy to use, the outdoor granite cleaner for all natural stone surfaces simply attaches to a garden hose for rinsing and washing. It is safe to use on all natural-stone and concrete patios, decks and driveways, and it will not harm plants, animals, siding or plastics.
Everyday bathroom cleaners contain harsh chemicals detrimental to natural-stone and tile surfaces such as shower walls and tub surrounds. The 24-ounce Granite Gold Shower Cleaner, however, is specially formulated to deep clean without damaging natural-stone surfaces. Safe on shower fixtures, regular use will help prevent mold, mildew, soap and hard water deposits from attaching to natural stone surfaces.
Granite Gold Grout Cleaner answers the questions of many homeowners looking for a cleaning product that removes grease, oil, dirt and soap scum that will not damage or discolor the grout.
The 24-ounce cleaner is formulated to clean grout for natural stone, porcelain, ceramic and glass. It is safe to use on colored grout and comes with a grout cleaning brush.
Granite Gold Daily Cleaner Refill comes in a 64-ounce container and is in response to the popularity of Granite Gold Daily Cleaner – the top-selling, dollar-generating, granite cleaner in U.S. grocery stores, according to 2010 Nielsen data. The streak-free formula safely deep-cleans granite, marble and other natural-stone surfaces, and quartz surfaces such as Silestone, and it leaves a fresh citrus scent.
“Some household cleaning projects are just time intensive and back breaking. With these new products, we’re helping make cleaning the shower, grout and outdoor patios much easier, and with the Daily Cleaner Refill, we’re helping people save money on those spills and quick clean-up jobs,” said Lenny Sciarrino, president and CEO of Granite Gold.
