Worst Natural Stone Restoration Supplies
When restoring your natural stone, it is extremely important to use the correct supplies.
Cleaners containing acids will etch or dull your stone which will then require the work of a stone restoration company to fix. A commonly used acidic acid used is vinegar. Do not use vinegar to restore your stone! It will cause the stone to dull and ruin its look. Bleach is also rarely a good option. It is a good disinfectant, but will leave grease, grime and dirt remaining on the stone’s surface. If possible, avoid using bleach at all costs. If you absolutely decide to use another product, be sure to check its acid levels as well as if it contains bleach.
Best Natural Stone Restoration Supplies
Neutral based cleaners, which are not acidic or alkaline, are good to use. These aren’t always available, but a good alternative is dish soap diluted in water. You want to use one tablespoon per gallon of water. When applying the cleaners, it’s best to use a micro fiber pad to effectively distribute the solution.
