Okay, first thing you're going to do is you're going to use your typical dishwasher soap, couple of drops in your water, and you're going to wipe it down. Or, there's another product that I just found out, it's the 409, and they actually have natural stone cleaner for your granite or your marble countertops. So you could spray that on, and you'd wipe that with your sponge. Make it nice and shiny. And then you want to dry it with your towel. And another tip is to use your Pledge. And what you do is you spray that on. If you can get the sprayer to work. And then you're going to actually buff that in. And put a little elbow grease into it, that's always a good thing. And then it'll makes it...this is lemon, it smells delicious, and it makes it look very pretty, nice, bright, and shiny. This is "How to Keep Your Granite Clean". I'm Cyn Deer, and hopefully your house will be cleaner for this.
