Lately, most people choose to replace the mundane tiles with granite, so you’ll see it on kitchen counters, bathrooms, floorings, bathroom shelves, everywhere!

But other people choose marble or travertine to decorate their homes, I find it fascinated because any hard stone decorations sends you back in time, creating a fairytale environment.

Well, everything is perfect until it has to be cleaned, because any hard stone surface has porous surface that accumulates dirt, grime and tons of bacteria which will make it hard to clean.

Well, not actually hard to clean! You have to use certain cleaning products especially designed for granite or other hard stone surface, because most all-purpose cleaners are too harsh for this type of material.
