Polish Soapstone Countertops

Updated:2014-06-18 11:52:12
Soapstone, a natural, non-porous, dense stone with a warm, soft surface is well suited to a variety of applications within a home. Compared to other natural stones, soapstone's ability to withstand heat and resist stains are advantages to its use in countertops. While soapstone may not have the brilliant beauty of granite or marble, its aesthetic value can be enhanced by polishing or oiling it routinely.

Instructions as follows:


Firstly, pour a small amount of mineral oil directly on the soapstone countertop.
Secondly, use a clean cotton cloth to spread the oil across the marble countertop surface.
Thirdly, wipe up excess oil with another clean cotton cloth.
Fourthly, place the first cloth into a plastic storage bag, and use it the next time you oil or polish the countertop. A saturated cloth will help spread the oil more easily across the countertop.
Fifthly, re-polish or oil the countertop as often as necessary. If you like the darker, more uniform look the process gives the countertop, oil it once weekly. Otherwise, you can do so once a month.
Tips & Warnings
Oiling or polishing a soapstone countertop is meant to enhance its appearance. Daily use of the countertop will cause oily areas to develop on the surface from contact with human skin, or foods or substances that come into contact with the counter. However, each coating of oil will serve to make the soapstone appear darker due to oxidation.
