Slate Countertop Care

Updated:2013-09-03 15:54:56

Slate is hard and strong and gives the homeowner a wide choice of colors. The type of slate and the location it was mined in determine the pattern, and since slate is a natural product, even countertops with the same pattern will still be unique. Slate care is quick and easy.

                                                      

Cleaning

Cleaning a slate countertop is as easy as washing with plain soap and water. For a more through cleaning, use any commercial spray cleaner. If you want to add a sheen, use Murphy's Oil Soap diluted with water.
Repairing
Light scratches are removed with soap and water in the same way the counter is cleaned. For deeper scratches, use wet steel wool.
Sealing
Black and gray tiles will come sealed because they have a natural tendency to be more absorbent than the other colors. Sealed slate should only be cleaned with the mildest soap and water. Anything else will damage the sealer and render it ineffective. Apply a layer of food grade mineral oil right after the countertop is installed on the other colors.
