wikihowI hate to burst anyones bubble…but WikiHow is wrong about Homemade Granite Cleaners!

http://www.wikihow.com/Clean-Granite-Countertops

In the article it states “Be sure you use cleaners that are pH balanced and include no acid or acidic type chemicals.” ¬†However, the following sentence says to “Combine mild dish detergent with rubbing alcohol.”

As you may know, dish detergents are highly alkaline (pH 11-14) and over time can break down stone sealers. Alcohol is also a strong solvent, and in a very weak solution with water, may not be very harmful. But why risk degrading your stone protection to save a few pennies?

As a 36 year stone industry veteran, I highly suggest using HMK P324 Stone Soap Concentrate. When diluted, a 1-liter bottle will clean up to 8000 square feet of countertop. We suggest mixing one capful in  a 32 oz. spray bottle filled with water. Simply spray countertops and wipe dry with a soft towel or Microfiber Wiping Cloth.

Used as a system, the HMK Stone Care Products will Clean, Protect, and Maintain all Natural Stone surfaces.
