Let’s start with the warning of what NOT to use on marble
Don’t: use generic, store-bought cleaning products of ANY kind.
Cleaning marble with products bought at your local store that contain acids, alkalis and other chemicals can etch or damage the countertop surface or degrade the sealant leaving the stone more vulnerable to staining. Unfortunately, most common, popular and name-brand cleaners will damage Kansas City marble countertops.
Trying to save money by using cheap, generic surface cleaners only ensures that you’ll spend a lot more time and money on your marble care in the long-run performing expensive repairs or marble restoration.
Cleaning of marble is as simple as this ONLY USE A MARBLE CLEANER sold in retails stores. One that says Marble cleaner.

Granite is a very durable stone. It is also much harder than marble. Granite has been used in the past in the commercial industry. Some of the obvious applications have been panels on the outside of buildings, walls, and floors of “high-traffic” areas. Granite will withstand almost any element it comes up against including heat and cold.
Granite itself is approximately 95-98% stain resistant but, we use a silicone impregnator on all of our natural stone products.
This will insure lasting life and beauty. Polished granite should receive the same cleaning care as polished marble, using a mild phosphate-free, biodegradable liquid dish-soap, soap flakes or powder which contains no aromatics. Followed by a thorough rinsing and drying with cotton-flannel or chamois.
