Protect Your Kitchen & Bathroom From Stains
Granite is known for being tough. While it is both durable and beautiful in your kitchen or bathroom, it may surprise you to learn that it can stain. Materials in modern soaps such as oils, sodium hydroxide, and fats can leave visible stains on granite countertops. Over time, this can reduce the beautiful aesthetic your countertop once had. Thankfully, most stains are easily treated—read on to learn about soap stains and how The Countertop Company helps San Diego homeowners like you take care of your granite.
What Is Soap Film and Why Does It Matter?
Soap film is a thin layer of liquid surrounded by air, like the film you see before blowing a bubble. On countertops in the kitchen and bathroom, soap from dispensers or cleaning dishes can easily get on countertops. This can create a soap film on the surface of your countertop, which can slowly etch itself into the granite.
You paid a pretty penny for those countertops—it’s important to ensure they are in the best shape possible. Staining can look unsightly, and severe staining has the potential to lower the value of a home, especially if new buyers feel they will have to replace the countertops.
How to Remove Soap Film on Granite Countertops
The good news is that most soap stains are nothing to worry about. Assuming they are not etched into the granite, which can take a considerable amount of time, the process is as simple as cleaning your countertop with soap and water.
Making sure to wipe down soap rings as soon as you see them is another great way to preserve your countertop. For especially oily soap stains, you may try mixing baking soda and a few drops of acetone and leaving it on the spot for 24 hours. You can read our full guide on granite countertop maintenance here.
