The beauty of cultured marble/granite is the ease of cleaning and maintaining the new shiny look. To clean, just wipe with a soft cloth or sponge using a mild soap and water or a non-abrasive foam cleaner. To maintain your marble/granite luster, periodically apply a protective coat of wax. We recommend GelGloss. It is like a furniture polish that should be applied every few months, depending on use. Boat or car wax is also a good means of protection.
