Granite Gold was one of my sponsors during the Backyard Blast giveaway event, but I didn’t have a chance to try out their products before the event went live. I originally thought that the counters in my one bathroom were made of real granite, but turns out they’re just the fake kind. My aunt, on the other hand, has a ton of real, beautiful granite, so I took it to her place to try it out (and let her have it, since she can make better use of it than I can).

I did try out the Daily Cleaner on my tiles before handing it over to my aunt, and I have to say, it worked pretty well! The Daily Cleaner is technically meant for granite, like all of the products in the line, but it can be used on a variety of surfaces. It cleans really well in just one swipe and has a lovely citrusy scent to it; not at all over-whelming like some cleaning products can be.

As the name suggests, Granite Gold really shines (pun intended) when used on granite surfaces. We tried a small spot on my aunt’s counters just to get an idea of how it works as a before/after comparison, and it almost instantly made the granite more polished looking and shiny. Following up with the Granite Gold polisher definitely enhances the overall effect.

Granite Gold products were created by experts in the stone industry, and they spent years perfecting the solution. Stone products are much different than your average tile or other surface, and regular glass cleaners can make them look like crud over time. Since granite is so expensive (my aunt jokes that if they ever go broke, they can pick all the little gold flakes out of their counter tops), it makes sense to use a cleaning product specifically designed for stone and created by people who actually know how to care for the material. Granite Gold not only works great, it’s non-toxic, so it’s safe to use on your food prep surfaces.

If you have stone surfaces, I would definitely recommend Granite Gold. At between $4.99-6.99 per bottle, it doesn’t cost any more than your average cleaning product, so you won’t need to pay a fortune extra for a specialty product. You can order it through online, or use their store locator to find it at a retailer near you. Check them out on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with news and deals.
