Use coasters under all glasses, particularly those containing alcohol ore citrus juice. Many common foods and drinks contain acids that will etch or dull the surface of softer stones like travertine and limestone. It is also recommended to not place hot items directly on the stone surface. Use trivets or mats under hot cookware.
Granite gallery recommends using GranQuarts 3-In-1 Spray Cleaner or a clear, mild dish washing detergent mixed with warm water when you are cleaning stone surfaces. Use a clean rag mop on floors and a soft cloth on other surfaces.
Do not use products that contain lemon, vinegar or other acids on marble or other calcareous stones.
Do not use scouring powders or creams; these products contain abrasives that may scratch the stone.
