Cleaning and Caring Resources for your Stone Countertops

Cleaning and Caring Resources for your Stone Countertops

October 26, 2011

You may have heard of famous story of Meg Ryan rubbing sliced tomatoes all over her brand new white marble countertops in her kitchen to "break them in." This is called acid-etching because the natural acid from the tomato literally etches the surface taking off the finish. This is pretty risky and not recommended, however, as acids can interfere with the stone's chemistry.

If you are looking for sound advice on the internet for how to clean and care for your stone countertops, you may be bogged down and overwhelmed by the thousands of forums and Meg Ryan-like testimonials.
