Cleaning Granite Tops - Cleaning Hacks (Part 1)

Cleaning Granite Tops

Granite worktops: a stylish but often sticky choice!

Granite is a popular choice for kitchen surfaces; it’s cool appearance compliments everything from the most minimalist to the most eclectic of kitchens. However, in our experience it’s also notoriously good at attracting grease and grime, with sticky surfaces ruining an otherwise pristine kitchen. Many specialist cleaning products have been developed to combat the streakiness, but these are more often than not extremely expensive. By our reckoning, these are simply not necessary, as the products hanging around in your kitchen cupboard are more than up to the job, saving you valuable pounds.

Here’s our fool proof method to clean granite surfaces:

  • Grab a clean dishcloth and dip it in some hot soapy water (the hotter the better to get rid of the clingy detritus on the granite surface)
  • Get a duster and wipe down again
  • Fill a bowl with a 1:2 solution of hot water and vinegar and swab down the surfaces one final time to remove any streakiness

….Voila! You’re left with worktops utterly gleeming!
