Simply mix the water and detergent and apply the solution with the cloth. Remember to rinse your cloth often with clean water, making sure you’re not pushing the dirt around.
Now, here’s the really important part: After you’ve cleaned your counter, you need to dry it off with a fresh, dry microfiber cloth. If you don’t, you could end up with water stains in the stone, and nobody wants to deal with those.
When you’re done with that, you’ll need to dry your counter with a fresh, dry microfiber cloth, so that your granite countertop doesn’t end up with water stains, and nobody wants do deal with those.
If your granite is stained, however, don’t use generic stain removers, bleach or even oxygenated bleach. You may end up with a bigger problem than you already have.
The products you use to clean stained granite countertops will depend on what caused the stain. If your granite countertop has been stained or has watermarks, you’ll need to refer to the manufacturer’s instructions to find out what products and processes they recommend.
