Housekeeping Tip: Cleaning Granite Sinks

Do you have one of those cool granite sinks?

I do and I like the fact that it can’t be scratched and it’s virtually indestructible.

What I haven’t liked, however, is that it has been difficult to keep it looking like it did when it was new.

Here’s how to achieve that new granite appearance!

Things’ You’ll Need

  • 3 microfiber cloths
  • Baking soda
  • Mild dish soap
  • Mineral Oil

Instructions

  1. Spray the black granite with the sink nozzle.
    Use your hands or a container if a sink sprayer is unavailable.
    Drench the granite and remove all remnants of food or waste.
  2. Sprinkle the baking soda into the granite sink.
    If any stains are present, add more powder to that area.
    Remember to sprinkle the sides as well.
    Let the baking soda soak into the black granite for roughly eight minutes.
  3. Rub the sink with the first microfiber cloth.
    Scrub thoroughly with a back and forth motion.
    Mainly scour the area around any stains, the sides of the sink, and the drain.
  4. Wash the baking soda from the basin.
    Use the spray nozzle or the cup to remove the remains from the sides as well.
  5. Add a drop of dish soap into the black granite basin.
    Scrub with the first cloth in a circular motion.
    Rinse away the soap and any remaining baking soda.
  6. Dry the sink with the second microfiber cloth.
    Rub down the area around the drain as well as the faucet base.
  7. Pour a quarter-sized amount of mineral oil on the third cloth.
    Rub the entire basin including the sides and top of the black granite sink.
