How to Easily Clean a Granite Sink

Have you ever wondered how to keep your granite sink looking new? I can show you how to easily accomplish this, but let's start with the ugly...

We have a lot of minerals in our water and it doesn't take long for our granite sinks to look like this!
All you need to do first is to clean the sink with a non-abrasive cleaner. I use this...
After it is clean, then wipe the sinks dry. With a paper towel, add Mineral Oil...
This is found in the pharmacy area of Wal-Mart. The oil will give a protective coating and last for several weeks and unlike other oils, it won't go rancid.
Simple and Easy! While you have the Mineral Oil out, go ahead and put a coat on your unsealed butcherblock, if you have one!

  1. We had a granite sink at our last house and I miss it so much! It was much easier to keep pretty than my stainless sink is now.

  2. Wow, I never thought to use mineral oil. I have one of these sinks and have been wonderng how to get it to look better. Thanks for sharing this helpful information!!!

  3. I do have a granite sink and I thank you for this idea!! I will try it. Woo hoo!

  4. Where did you purchase the Multi Surface cleaner? I can't find it anywhere. Can I use soft scrub and then mineral oil?

  5. AMEN!!! Workers in my house sanded my cabinets and now I have a film from the paint, I have cleaned and cleaned and still has that haze. Will try this!


It makes me smile to hear from you!
