FAQs

What is the best cleaner for granite countertops?

There are a few excellent choices to clean your granite countertops. One of the best cleaners for granite countertops is a mild, all-purpose cleaning spray made with natural ingredients. Sprays and wipes made specifically for granite countertops are also an option if you’re looking for cleaners that polish your counters while also removing food residue and other impurities.


One of our favorite granite cleaners is a combo of dish soap and water. To use this method, grab a reusable spray bottle and fill it with a cup of warm water. Add a couple drops of a mild dish soap and shake to combine. Spray the mixture on your countertops and wipe down with a microfiber cloth, giving a little extra elbow grease to super dirty spots.


To sanitize your granite countertops, add 4 tablespoons of isopropyl alcohol to the dish soap and water mixture, then spray your counters and wipe ‘em down. For areas that have stains or hardened-on gunk, pour undiluted isopropyl alcohol onto a clean microfiber cloth. Rub the stained area for 15 seconds, then immediately wipe it off with a mild cleanser.


Can you use an all-purpose cleaner on granite?

Natural all-purpose cleaners are safe to use on granite countertops. Natural cleaners are made from plant-based ingredients that get your home clean without potentially harmful chemicals. Conventional cleaners contain harsh ingredients that could damage your granite counters. To maintain the beauty of your countertops, it’s best to stick with the natural stuff.

What cleaners should not be used on granite?

Granite countertops are covered in a protective sealant to prevent accidents from leaving scratches or stains. But certain cleaners can cause permanent damage to the sealant, resulting in ugly stains and disfiguration.


To prevent damage to your granite countertops, avoid using any products that contain vinegar, bleach, or any ingredients that are highly acidic. These powerful cleaners are great for cleaning some things — vinegar especially — but granite countertops require more gentle cleaning methods.
