Make a Cleaning Solution for Granite Countertops

Updated:2013-11-27 15:39:29
Natural stones--such as granite and marble--are a popular countertop option for kitchens of all designs and decor. Stone countertops are generally more expensive and require special care to keep them looking their best. Even though granite is a hard, durable stone, you still must clean it with the correct tools so as not to damage the countertop. If you care for your granite countertop properly, it will give you a lifetime of use.

Instructions as follows:


Firstly, fill a container with 2 cups of cool water. Add 1/2 cup of rubbing alcohol, 1 tsp. of pure castile soap and 3/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
Secondly, add 20 drops of lavender essential oil and 20 drops of tea tree oil to the mixture. Combine thoroughly with the wooden spoon.
Thirdly, pour the mixture into a clean spray bottle. Apply the mixture to the granite countertops and wipe clean with a sponge. Repeat the process once a week to keep your countertops clean.
Fourthly, dampen the stain with distilled water.
Fifthly, mix together 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 2 tbsps. of hydrogen peroxide in a small bowl. Slowly add just 1 tsp. of water at a time until a thick paste forms.
Sixthly, spread the paste onto the stain. Place plastic wrap on top of the stain and secure the edges with masking tape.
Seventhly, let the paste dry for 24 hours. The paste needs to be completely dry to pull out the stain. Remove the plastic once the paste is dried.
Eighthly, dampen a clean cloth with distilled water and wipe the granite countertop clean. Buff the area dry with a clean towel.
