  1. 1

    Make a paste of baking soda and peroxide and use it to lightly scrub the stain with a microfibre cloth. The purpose of this is to buff away the damaged surface.

  2. 2

    Leave a thin layer of cleaning paste on the stain overnight. Cover it with the microfibre cloth. This will draw any colour out of the stain.

  3. 3

    Use a dry microfibre cloth to polish the white stain on your black granite.

  4. 4

    Use granite sealer to polish and protect the area from future damage.

Tips and warnings

  • Immediately clean up stains. Sitting acids (lemon juice, fruit punch) can cause stains that are very difficult to remove.
  • Do not use any lemon products on granite because the granite is porous and lemon juice will ruin the finish.
  • Do not use an ordinary kitchen cleaning product to clean granite.
