The following is recommended to maintain the countertops:

DO blot up spills immediately; acidic substances could potentially stain the surface. Cooking oils may also leave a stain.

DO clean surfaces using a sponge or soft cloth. Repeated use of regular dish soap will cause build up and dull the countertop shine.

DO use coasters under all glasses, bottles and cans. It is good practice to protect all surfaces.

DO use trivets and hot pads under pots and pans. It is possible for granite to suffer “thermal shock” and crack. 

DO use cutting boards to avoid scratching the surface and protect your knives from becoming dull and or damaged.

DON’T use generic cleaning products such as bleach, glass cleaners, degreasers or other common household cleaners on the granite.

DON’T use vinegar, ammonia, lemon or orange as cleaners on the granite.

DON’T sit or stand on the countertops. Granite countertops are very hard and not flexible and they do not have plywood backing so too much weight in one spot could cause a crack.

DON’T store toiletry products directly on you countertop surface. Hair products, perfumes, colognes, nail products, creams, lotions and potions have a tendency to spill or leak and are overlooked. Even when sealed, a substance that remains on the surface for an extended period may stain the granite. Practice proactive granite counter top care by storing these products on a shelf or decorative tray
