Get into the habit of

  • Using coasters under drinks—even water left on your countertop can seep into the porous stone and leave behind a stain
  • Using trivets or mats under anything that could potentially scratch the surface
  • Keeping alcohol away from counters—alcohol is not pH neutral and will mark your counter
  • Never placing hot items right on the stone surface
