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-Bleach 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 3/4 cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach per gallon of water.  Apply the bleach solution and let stand for 5 minutes, rinse thoroughly, and allow to air dry.
