A common question I receive at Norwex parties is, “Do you have anything to clean granite countertops?” People are intimidated by their granite countertops, because you’re not supposed to use cleaners on them. And so, people don’t know what to use. Or, they find that their granite is streaky after wiping. So, DOES Norwex have a product that can clean granite countertops?
Norwex for Granite
Cleaning granite with Norwex is actually really easy. You simply need a damp EnviroCloth or Kitchen cloth to wipe it down, and a Window Cloth or Kitchen Towel to polish it dry. Polishing the surface with the Window Cloth or Kitchen Towel after it’s been cleaned ensures that it gleams. You’ve never had a more satisfying gleam than a Norwex gleam!
ProTip: Some people find that they can skip the polishing step, and just wipe their countertop down with a damp EnviroCloth for a streak free wipe! Give it a try and see if it works for your counter!
Not Shining Up?
If you find that your granite is still dull after polishing it with a Window Cloth, you may need a new coat of sealant. Here’s how to know: put a teaspoon of water on it. If the water sits on top, your sealant is still ok. But, if the water does not sit on top (but absorbs into the counter), it’s time to seal it again.
Granite sinks are difficult to keep clean, as they really ‘hold on’ to stains that aren’t always easily wiped away. The simple Norwex solution to that problem is the Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent. I know, I know. Why am I saying to clean a sink with laundry detergent?! Because, this laundry detergent is great in so many different places, for so many different jobs!
And this job is an easy one!
- Sprinkle some Ultra Power Plus Detergent in the sink
- Add some hot water
- Stir and walk away
- Let it sit for a few hours.
When you come back, BAM! It’ll should be clean!*
*If it’s crazy stained, there may be some staining still left. If that’s the case, you can make a paste with the Ultra Power Plus Detergent and do a little bit of scrubbing, with an abrasive cloth or sponge, like the Kitchen Scrub Cloth or Spirisponge, if necessary.
Other Norwex BFF’s for your Granite
Norwex also has handy little Sink Mats that I love for granite. These three small, different sized mats are great for protecting granite counters from moisture.
They’re super absorbent, and have a non slip backing on them.Use them to place wet items on, and keep moisture away. Bonus: They contain BacLock, so they’re going to self-purify in between uses! Put wet (or potentially wet) items on them like:
- Water pitchers and bottles
- Washed Fruit
- Dish soap and accessories
- Breast pump accessories
- Bottles & Soothers
- Menstrual Cup
- Potted plants
Mold and Mildew Stain Remover
If you have granite in the bathroom, and need an all purpose cleaner on the surface, this bottle of magic will do the trick! It’ll work to get rid of soap scum or hard water build up, and is safe for granite. Not all cleaners are compatible with your granite (including Norwex’s All-Purpose Blue Diamond Cleaner, unfortunately), so you have to be super choosy. While the Mold and Mildew Stain Remover was created specifically for removing the stains from mold and mildew, it’s been discovered to also be a safe and fantastic all-purpose cleaner on natural stone. It’s also great for cleaning:
No need to fear your granite counters and sinks, anymore. Norwex has you covered! If you’d like any of these products for your home, you can buy them online from my shop! www.suzanneholt.norwex.biz
