How to Clean Granite Countertops

To keep your granite countertops looking beautiful for years to come, you'll need to clean them regularly with non-abrasive materials. Wipe up spills immediately to avoid staining, and use Simple Green Stone Cleaner to give your counters the look and cleanliness your kitchen deserves.


  1. Spray Simple Green on the countertop. For heavy grime and grease, apply full strength Simple Green and let soak for a minute or more. For general cleaning & daily care, dilute about 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of Simple Green to 1 cup of water.
  2. Scrub, if necessary. Use a sponge or non-abrasive cloth for a thoroughly clean, residue-free surface without scratching your counters.
  3. Wipe & rinse with clean water. Thoroughly wipe down the counter with a damp sponge, non-abrasive cloth or paper towel to ensure a residue-free surface.
  4. Optional: Dry and polish. For extra shine on your granite counters, follow your cleaning with Simple Green Stone Polish. Give the countertops a final wipe-down with a non-abrasive cloth or paper towel for a sparkling clean, streak-free surface.

When in doubt about a surface, always spot test a small, non-prominent area first such as the underside of the ledge on your counter.
