White vinegar is used for so many everyday cleaning chores but using it could damage your granite countertops. According to a new article in Apartment Therapy (December 8, 2019), the acid in white vinegar (as well as lemon juice and citric acid) can wear away the sealant and even etch the granite itself.
Mild soap and water work best to clean your granite. “But,” you say, “it’s a kitchen and I want to disinfect them too!” In that case, you can use a 50/50 mixture of water and 91% isopropyl alcohol or a commercial granite cleaner. Buffing with a microfiber cloth afterwards will help that granite shine!
You paid good money for those counter tops you don’t want to do anything to damage them.
