    Many people prefer to leave their soapstone untreated, which is doable with proper care. Keeping a green scrubbing pad (like you would use on your dishes) handy is a must. You will find that this will easily buff out any water rings or marks on your counters. A light sand paper can be used as well, followed by buffing with the green pad. More care and maintenance tips can be found on our website: www.alberenesoapstone.com

    My soapstone counters are unoiled ... you have to be ok with that lived in look. Anything with oil leaves its mark. Dish soap cleans most of it, but not always.

    Good Morning...The countertop in this kitchen is a product that has been used in kitchen construction for hundreds of years, and we don't see it coming to and end any time soon! It is simple soapstone that has not been oiled which gives it a weathered, industrial look. The majority of soapstone installed today is oiled giving it a darker finish that brings out the striations in the natural stone, however the owner of this home wanted to bring something into his kitchen that was highly unique and extremely durable. I'm so pleased you like it, and thanks for your inquiry!

              2. Soapstone. Soapstone’s durability has made this material a top choice for hundreds of years. Its density makes it resistant to stains and bacteria, and it’s unaffected by heat. To clean it, simply wipe it down with mild soap and water. On the flip side, soapstone develops a darker patina over time and can scratch or chip. While some people feel this gives their countertops character, others prefer to sand soapstone regularly to keep it looking like new.Read more about soapstone countertops

              I like the ‘feel’ of this kitchen. Perfect combo of wood, mixed metals, color, light uppers/tile
