Cleaning granite shower tiles

In a (typical) triamph of form over function we have tiled our wet room in black granite. It really looks lovely but... All my cleaning products say "not suitable for natural stone". Do any wise mums netters have any advice on keeping it clean and free from limescale?

Thanks xx

My old kitchen had a black granite worktop. I used a window scraper (the blade thingy for removing paint off glass) on any limescale that build up around the tap. Windowlene was best for shine but tbh I used all the kitchen cleaners that said they weren't suitable for granite. I don't envy you.....the watermarks on it must be a pita.

I would get a window vac thing to hoover up water after you shower - surprisingly satisfying

HG Hagesan do a marble and natural stone cleaner - B&Q sell their stuff.

Use a steam cleaner and a window vac. Very quick to do and, of course, germ free.
