Nervous about caring for a maintaining and piece of billion year old stone? Don’t be! They key is to be gentle.

Over time, organic debris collects on the stone and can get into the lettering and artwork, sometimes making it hard to read. By following these simple steps a few times a year, it will help ensure the preservation of your memorial for years to come.

cleaning your granite memorial

You will just need 3 supplies:

  • Warm water
  • A soft, natural bristle brush or microfiber cloth
  • ‘Simple Green’ all purpose cleaner

Dilute the Simple Green with warm water and gently brush the granite with a soft toothbrush. Rinse with clean, warm water.

It is imperative that NO harsh chemicals or abrasives be used anywhere on the granite surface. We recommend ‘Simple Green’  because it is a non-toxic, biodegradable cleaner without bleach or strong chemicals.
