Cleaning limestone countertops can be a challenge, especially if you haven't cleaned them in a while.
If you have limestone countertops you know what I'm talking about.
Limestone is very porous, and absorbs liquids very easily.
Using warm or hot water with a little dish soap works for daily cleaning
We always recommend using micorfiber cloths for cleaning limestone counters or any natural stone surfaces.
If your limestone is stained or has etch marks, it may need a little more than just a cleaning.
It may need to be looked at by a stone professional to restore the desired finish.
Limestone tile or counters can have a matte or polished finish. Ask us how we can help you restore the finish.
How to Clean Limestone
Cleaning limestone surfaces is the same as cleaning any natural stone and isn't a hard task.
Don't be worried about damaging your stone.
We always recommend
for all natural stone surfaces and that includes limestone.
Neutral cleaners are safe for all natural stone and tile and grout surfaces.
If you have more soiled limestone, you can use an akaline cleaner that is
safe for stone surfaces.
Once you've chosen your cleaner, what you want to do is:
- Apply solution to your stone and let it dwell 10-20 minutes making sure not to let it dry.
- Scrub the limestone with a microfiber cloth or soft bristle brush.
- Wipe up dirty solution and rinse with warm water a few times.
What ever you clean your stone surface with, always rinse well and dry completely with a cotton or
Drying it completely helps because any wet area left to dry, may have dirt left in
it which doesn't evaporate like the water does.
Now you're ready to seal your Limestone. See our
sealing limestone page
