Like any natural stone you need to make sure that the stone is sealed with a high quality sealer like Stone Tech by Dupont. For cleaning the counters you should use a stone cleaner such as Stone Tech's Revitalizer that also has a little sealer in it as well. The stone will withstand acids well because it is not a marble and does not contain calcium carbonate. The sealer will repel the oils. I hope this helps!

Pietra del Cordosa - type of soapstone/slate countertops "We have Pietra del Cordosa countertops in our kitchen and they have been absolutely indestructible! Grease, grime, teenage boys who spill and don't wipe up -- counters still beautiful after 2 years. I attribute it to a great sealer - called "Dry-Treat". Besides performing well, surprisingly, it only has to be re-sealed every 15 years. I was nervous about putting in Pietra but it had the matte rustic look I wanted and was a true charcoal gray, unlike much of the soapstone available today, which is darker and sometime greenish. It's my favorite thing about my kitchen remodel! Highly recommend."
