Sealing: When purchasing your countertops make sure they are sealed. Granite is known for its strength and durability but is still worn down with use. Make sure you maintain your countertops by sealing them regularly. Failure to seal your granite regularly will result in staining of your precious granite countertops. To test the sealing of your countertops simply drop some water, if it is soaked up it needs to be resealed.

Swiftly wipe: To prevent your countertops from developing stains, make sure you wipe any spills as fast as possible. Sealing will protect your countertops but maintaining your countertops will be more beneficial to owners in the long run. Keep the surfaces clean to increase their longevity.

Cleaning: Using mild dish detergents and warm water with a washcloth will clean your counters and deliver a hygienic look similar to those of abrasive sprays without damaging your counter. Granite is tolerant of higher temperatures so using warm water and dish detergent is effective. If you want to use stronger substances, dilute them in water.
