How to Clean Your Granite Benchtop

Cleaning your granite benchtops the right way

If you have granite benchtops or you’re thinking about investing in granite benchtops for your Perth kitchen, here are some essential cleaning tips to keep them shining for years to come.

Dust removal

To remove excessive dust from your benchtops, you should aim to use a dampened microfibre cloth, making even sweeping movements across the surface to remove the initial layer. For the best results, clean the cloth, and give it a second ‘once over’.

Stain prevention

While sealed granite is difficult to stain, it’s important to clean up any spillages quickly to prevent any long-term marks or blemishes. A granite cleaner such as MB Stonecare MB5 ‘Stone & More’ which has been specifically designed for marble & granite will help to remove cooking oil and other spills without damaging the stone or breaking down the sealer.  Team this with a good quality sealer such as MB24 barrier, which will help to resist penetration of stains into the stone.


For a natural buffed shine, you should use a soft, smooth, dry microfibre cloth after you’ve wet-cleaned your surfaces, using circular motions (working from one side to the other) to create a consistent sheen. For an extra special shine, use MB Stonecare MB13 polish to enhance the stones natural colours and provide a protective shield that repels water. Not only will this look great but this simple method will also help you extend the life of your worktops. You could also try MB stonecare Finito which is a finishing spray which protects, smooths and beautifies all polished and honed stone surfaces. It adds shine and creates a protective shield that repels water, reduces fingerprints and light scratches, smooths the surface and makes routine cleaning easier.
