The golden rules of stone care, ensuring the longevity of your stones, can be summarised as follows:
DO use coasters under glasses, especially if they contain alcohol or citrus juices.
DO use trivets or mats under hot dishes or cookware.
DO use place mats under china, ceramics, silver or other objects that may scratch your stone’s surface.
DO place a small rug or mat at entryways to trap dirt and sand from normal foot traffic.
DO dust counter-tops, islands, vanities and floors frequently.
DO blot up spills immediately to minimise permanent damage to the stone.
DO clean surfaces regularly with neutral cleaners designed for stone.
DON’T use vinegar, bleach, ammonia, other general purpose cleaners, bathroom cleaners or tub and tile cleaners.
DON’T use abrasive cleaners such as dry cleansers or soft cleansers.
DON’T use alkaline cleaners not specifically formulated for stone.
