Bleach and Granite Countertops

By Dr. Laundry January 2, 2012

Q: Is Clorox® Regular-Bleach safe to use on my granite countertops?

A:  Yes, Clorox® Regular-Bleach2 is safe for sealed granite countertops. Remember, bleach should never be used full strength for cleaning any surface — it should always be diluted with water first. For disinfecting countertops, use a solution of 1/2 cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach2 per gallon of water. Apply the bleach solution and let stand for 5 minutes, rinse thoroughly, and allow to air dry.
