Sweep or brush the granite on a regular basis to remove grit and debris that may get ground into the stone. Frequent sweeping helps ensure that microscratches do not occur on the stone.
Spray a stone cleaner or a neutral-pH cleaner, like Dawn or Ivory dish soap, mixed with water onto the granite. Rub the stone clean with a soft cloth.
Spray stone polisher or pour a small amount of shine-enhancing stone sealer onto the granite. Buff the polisher or sealer into the granite with a soft cloth. Rub the granite firmly using a circular motion to work the product into the surface of the stone. Keep rubbing until the stone feels dry and not tacky to the touch.
