Bleach is far too harsh for your natural stone. It will quickly begin to strip both the sealant and the finish on your natural stones. This will expose your stone, making it even more susceptible to grime, dirt, and further damage.

Highly Acidic Cleaners

Many household cleaners are highly acidic, which can damage the quality and appearance of your - natural stone. This includes items such as:

- Vinnegar. Many people regard vinegar as the Holy Grail of cleaners, and while it is versatile and useful, it should never be used to clean your natural stone!

- Lemon Juice. Lemon juice is often used with items such as baking soda to have a chemical-free, fresh-smelling clean. While it’s great to drop down your garbage disposal to freshen it, the acid will wear down your natural stone very quickly.

- Disinfectant wipes. While they are convenient, they are also damaging! The acid in these wipes can damage the sealant on your natural stone.

- Glass Cleaner. Natural Stone is quite porous; glass cleaners are harsh and can damage even after just one use.

Any product you want to use on your natural stone should be perfectly neutral. Though we have many tips on caring for your natural stone, having a professional take a crack at it is never a bad idea.
