- Wet a clean cloth with clear water.
- Rub the cloth over the surface of the granite. This will wipe up any crumbs, dust or pieces of dirt. It will also remove any food or cleaning solution residue.
- Add just enough liquid dish soap to 2 tbsp. flour to make a thick paste.
- Spread the paste over any stains on the granite counter. Stained counters will not shine.
- Let the flour paste sit on the area overnight until it dries.
- Wet another clean cloth and rub it over the flour paste on the black granite.
- Immediately dry the counters with a microfiber cloth. One common reason why granite counters do not shine is that water air dried on it and has made a watermark. Continue drying the granite in circular motions until the granite is polished and bright.
- Spray stone polish on the surface of the granite if it still does not appear polished.
- Buff the polish by rubbing it with a circular motion until the granite shines.
