We purchased special cleaners for it and I clean it regularly. What I didn't realize is how quickly it "stains" even though it's been sealed.
Now after a couple of months the granite around my stove is getting dark. Presumably from the grease and other fun events when one is as sloppy of a cook as I am.
It doesn't look horrible but there is a noticeable difference. So what does one do in this situation? She researches it online. This is the solution I have found.
I purchased acetone from the paint section of Home Depot. A roll of paper towels. Saran Wrap and masking tape.
You soak a stack of paper towels, 7 or 8 deep, with the acetone. And yes it smells just as awful as nail polish remover.
After laying the thorughly soaked towels over the stain you cover it in Saran Wrap and tape it down for 24-48 hours.
This is to keep the moisture in so the acetone can soak into the granite.
After the allotted time is up you remove the Saran Wrap but allow the paper towel to remain in place until it dries up. This is when the towel will absorb the acetone and whatever stain may be in your stone.
I just placed the towels down today. I am really hoping it will clear up my granite as advertised. For tough stains they suggest repeated applications. I'll keep you posted.
