Caring for Granite Countertops

There are two different products the Kitchen Gallery recommends for sealing and caring your granite countertops.  Descriptions of each product and application instructions are below the two images.

Use the Drytreat after the countertops have been installed.  If you have the sealer ready for application when it comes time to install your new granite countertops, the countertop installers may apply the Drytreat sealer for you.  I say may, because sometimes the sealer is applied at the fabrication shop before the countertop arrives at your home.  At any event applying the Drytreat sealer is easy.

Use the Black Diamond Cleaner daily or as needed.

How to use:

ALWAYS TEST PRODUCT ON A SMALL AREA FIRST and allow a 24-hour cure time to determine the ease of application and desired results.
Ensure surfaces to be treated are dry, clean and free of residues.
DO NOT thin product.
Generously saturate the surface with STAINPROOF Plus™ using a low pressure hand spray, a clean brush or lamb’s wool applicator. Surface should have a mirror like ‘wet’ look for 3-5 seconds. Avoid contact with surrounding areas.
Allow the surface to become touch dry, waiting a minimum of 10 minutes, and repeat Step 4. Total application rate is approximately one quart per 100 sq.ft. (one litre per 10 square metres), depending on surface absorption.
After the final coat allow the surface to become touch dry, waiting a minimum of 10 minutes, and then polish with a clean dry white cloth to remove excess product, moistening cloth with STAINPROOF Plus™ to ease polishing.
Use an organic solvent e.g. methylated spirits to clean equipment.
Sealer will NOT prevent surface etching, scuff marks or wear and may lighten or darken some surfaces. STAIN-PROOF Plus™ will make the maintenance and cleaning of treated surfaces much easier.


Do not take internally.
Apply when surface temperature is between 5 – 35°C (40 – 95°F).
Avoid moisture contact with the surface for six hours after application. Surface may be used after 24 hours with full cure up to 4 weeks.
Protect surrounding areas from over-spray.
Keep away from drains, plants, water and soil. Do not empty into drains.
Use only in well ventilated areas. Use a positive pressure respirator if ventilation is inadequate.
Wear suitable solvent resistant gloves, protective clothing, safety goggles and an organic vapor respirator during application.
Wash hands thoroughly after applying.


Keep container tightly sealed in a cool, well ventilated place. It is recommended that this product is best used within seven days of opening to avoid possible spoilage.

Black Diamond Daily Cleaner

Granite is a high-end stone that is growing popularity with homeowners in the United States. Along with Marble and Tile, these types of countertops need a specially formulated cleaner to leave a deep clean finish without causing any damage.

Not all cleaners are safe for granite. You’ve probably used cleaners and left white streaks or thinned your countertop sealer. Sealing your counter for the first time is already expensive and if your cleaner is damaging your sealer, resealing every so often would be very costly.
