Although granite is a hard material and is very durable, it is also porous. The pores in a slab of granite will absorb liquids and other substances that have a thin consistency. If the substance or liquid has pigment (is colored), then it can get into the pores of your beautiful granite counter top or vanity and cause discoloration that you would like to remove. If that happens, the color will need to be “drawn out” of the stone. Keeping up with the maintenance of your granite surface can make it easier to remove these stains. Our granite stone care kits are configured to help you care for and maintain your precious natural stone.
