Granite countertops are absolutely gorgeous…when you take care of them the right way. The problem? Most of us don’t really know what “the right way” is! I think we just assume that since granite is super strong, it’s also super easy to keep clean. While that’s sort of true, if you don’t go the extra mile every now and then, your granite will lose its luster pretty fast.
Don’t worry, though! Keeping it looking gorgeous and breathing new life into lackluster granite isn’t as hard as you might think! Granite Gold® has a super simple process that’s literally as easy as one-two-three. Let’s check it out!
Before we get into those 3 steps, let’s talk a bit about why we chose Granite Gold®. Did you know that their products are backed by three generations of knowledge?1 The entire family has a passion for stone care going back to their grandfather, Leonardo.
When the family of stone care experts couldn’t find the perfect product to clean, restore and protect granite, they made it themselves! Years of trial and error went into the Granite Gold® products and their awesome three-step process. Ready to learn all about it? Check out the video, then read on for more details about each step!
The first step to breathing new life into granite countertops is, of course, keeping it clean. Your first instinct may be to reach for soap and water (which are not formulated to clean natural stone), or maybe another household cleaner. Not so fast! Many cleaners can be abrasive to your natural stone counters! Granite Gold Daily Cleaner®, on the other hand, is designed to let you clean your countertops every day without ever destroying that seal. It works so well, even my significant other commented on how clean the counters looked!
According to the experts at Granite Gold®, you can never over-seal your natural stone countertops. Without a proper seal, things like food particles can make their way into your stone. This leads to etching and staining, which is not a pretty sight! Their Granite Gold Sealer® helps create and maintain the protective barrier between your stone and everything around it. While you don’t need to seal every day, you should do it frequently.
Honestly, I never thought of sealing my granite countertops before and now I have some etching. I’m just heartbroken that I didn’t think of it before. If you look close, you can see it here.
Now, I’ll definitely make sure I never skip this step again so I can avoid more damage!
The last step, polishing, really helps bring out the shine in your granite countertops! It also acts as a final barrier to lock in that seal. I was so impressed by Granite Gold Polish®. Just look at how my counters shine now!
In just three steps, my granite counters look new again. It couldn’t have been any easier! Granite countertops are a fantastic investment. They can last a lifetime with proper care and add such value to your home. I love how easy Granite Gold® makes it to keep my granite in great shape and looking amazing!
