1. Keep Granite free of sand and dirt, especially on flat surfaces – the grit can scratch the stone. For worktops, and tables, dust with a dry cloth, then wipe up spills immediately to avoid staining. To clean granite worktops use only warm water and wipe with a soft cloth or sponge. Soak caked-on food before wiping, preferably with a small amount of soapy water. 
  1. To remove difficult stains due to build up – if stain is water based, then soak with hot water, then blot away with kitchen towels. If stain is oil-based, then use very small amount of nail varnish remover and soak stain for ten hours, then rinse with cold water.
