Honed black granite countertops
May 9, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We just had honed black granite countertops installed in our new kitchen. We have only been in the house for less than 2 weeks and have been very gentle with them (which will not continue once we are fully unpacked and truly 'living' in the house). It seems that all marks and smudges stay and cannot be cleaned off. There are many examples but last night my 2 yr old put her fingers on the counter to reach her cup and her little prints are still there, even after I washed the counter with soapy water and a granite cleaner. PLEASE HELP! Did I really spend all of this money to get a countertop that will always look dirty?
