How to maintain granite

Granular-like structure made of hard, crystalline minerals, granite is not your everyday kitchen worktop, so it needs particular care. In order to clean granite countertops, use soap or liquid dishwashing soap. Do not use ammonia based products (such as Windex), bleach, vinegar, or steel wool pads on your granite.

Do I need to seal my granite worktop?
