A: Polished granite is a very durable stone; much harder than marble. Granite has been used in the past in the commercial industry in "high-traffic" areas. Granite will withstand almost any element it comes up against including heat and cold. A mild dish soap and water will work. But, a soap build up may occur over time if you don't rinse your countertops well. It's best to use products made specifically for stone. See our Care & Maintenance section for more information on stone care.
