Caring for your

Granite Benchtop

Care Guide Granite Benchtop


Everyday cleaning

✓ Use clean, warm, soapy water and then wipe dry with a soft cloth.

✓ Use a granite care spray regularly to retain the shine of your benchtop.


Professional resealing

✓ We recommend professional resealing every two years.


Removing food residue

✓ Gently use a plastic Scotch-Brite pad or similar to shift stubborn food.


Preventing damage

✓ Use a trivet or hot pads when placing appliances or pots straight from the oven/stove directly onto your benchtop. Granite is heat resistant and moderate temperatures will not affect the stone. However, extreme temperatures may damage your benchtop.

✓ Always use a cutting board — never cut directly on your benchtop.

✗ Avoid hitting your benchtop with anything blunt or heavy, as this can cause chips or cracks.

✗ Avoid sitting, standing or placing heavy items on unsupported areas.

✗ Avoid prolonged exposure to:

  • Rusted tins
  • Vinegar
  • Red wine
  • Beetroot
  • Sauces
  • Acids
  • Margarine & oils (including cooking splatters)
