How To Rid Your Granite Of Pesky Stains (Shelby Township, MI)

In severe cases, a stain may require a granite cleansing poultice. A poultice for care of granite countertops can be made by combining a tablespoon or two of dish soap with a cup of white flour and enough water to make a paste.

To use the paste, spread it over the stain, and lay plastic wrap over the paste. By letting this set overnight, the flour will have time to absorb the stain back out of the granite counter top surface.

Molding plaster can also be made into a poultice for care of granite countertops. Combine it with bleach and use the paste on stains that are not from greasy sources. Stains such as ink or wine might respond to this treatment. For oily stains, use water instead of bleach to make this poultice.

Hydrogen peroxide is safe to use for care of granite countertops and can be combined with ammonia to treat food stains like tea or coffee. Peroxide is more suited to light colored granite countertops, however, since it has something of a bleaching action. It can also be used with flour in place of dish soap to make a paste to clean greasy stains. According to onlinetips.org
