All natural should be washed with a clean, soft cloth and fresh, warm, soapy water. This should remove any residue which may have become ingrained.
Do clean surfaces with mild detergent and warm water.
Do thoroughly rinse and dry the surface after washing.
Do blot up spills immediately.
Always use a chopping board when cutting fresh fruits, vegetables and meats as many common foods and drinks contain acids that will etch or dull the surface of the stone.
Use a coaster under all glasses, particularly those containing alcohol or citrus juices.
Always use a trivet or matt under hot pots, pans or dishes as the heat generated can cause the stone to crack.
Do seal your stone periodically to protect the finish and to prevent staining.
Keep your cosmetics and fragrances away from stone surface and make sure that the legs of any trays or appliances have felt tips.
