Editor's Notes

February 25, 2021:

It is important to use either purpose-made cleaners on granite, or ones that are specifically listed as being safe for them, if you want to make sure you aren't causing any harm to their finish. All of the formulas here fall into one of those two categories.

During this update we have decided to eliminate Bio Clean: Professional. Though it shouldn't harm granite, its main purpose is to remove hard water stains, so it isn't very versatile. We believe most people would be better off with one of our other recommendations, such as Therapy Cleaner & Polish, which can remove hard water stains with a few applications. It also leaves behind a better sheen on granite. The one we have included here is a new formula that is made with lemon essential oils that give it a pleasant fragrance. Weiman Brighten Wipes are convenient to use on a regular basis, and you can easily keep them in the bathroom or anywhere else your granite is constantly exposed to hard water for quick wipes when needed to prevent it from ever building up.

While the majority of our recommendations are purpose-made formulas, Puracy All-Purpose Streak-Free is suitable for all kinds of surfaces, including wood, glass, and chrome, making it a handy cleaner to keep in any home.

If you want to add protection as you clean, you should choose a solution that also includes a sealant, like TriNova Daily, Black Diamond Stoneworks 2-in-1, and StoneTech Revitalizer. You can also go with Rock Doctor Complete Care, which is a bundle that includes a cleaner, polish, and sealant.

January 23, 2019:

Granite surfaces require non-acidic, non-abrasive solutions to clean them so as not to damage their seal, which is why many consumers notice deterioration occur when they use the wrong formula (such as window cleaner). Instead, dedicated granite or all-natural, all-purpose options that are safe for food prep areas with a balanced pH are best, which is what this list contains. After ensuring each one was safe for stone, we ranked our selections based on effectiveness, value for money, and subtle fragrances that don't linger.
