Question

Is Clorox® Regular Bleach2 safe to use on my granite countertops?

Answer

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.
