just moved into a house with black granite work sufaces in the kitchen. No matter what I clean them with I end up with a lot of smears ! Any tips ?

I have black granite and my husband is a granite fitter / stonemason. They recommend the Mr Muscle purple bottle. Can't remember the proper name but they use it in the show rooms and we use it at home, its good stuff. Seen a new ad on tv for a new granite cleaner but not tried it yet.

"Method Home - The Daily Granite" from Waitrose, John Lewis or online. An old towel is good for polishing at the end and getting smears out.

hi tree hugger, is it a 'flash' type liquid or a spray ? Thank you, will look out for it.

No its in the spray gun type bottle.

E-cloths, they are fantastic and you need no chemicals whatsoever.

Check out goodhousekeeping for a zillion threads on the topic.

Treehuggermum1? Mr Muscle? There is a discrepency between your name and your cleaning habits. grin

I use window cleaner on my black granite tables, so sure that would do the trick on work surfaces too.

second vote for e-cloths, only thing that kept it looking nice in our last house. But whatever you use you have to do it constantly to keep them looking nice.

yes they are quite high maintenance aren't they ! Not great with two toddlers !
