Why Use a pH-Neutral Dish Soap

When it comes to cleaning your countertops, especially those made from natural stone like granite, marble, quartz, or quartzite, using a pH-neutral dish soap is crucial. pH-neutral cleaners are gentle yet effective in removing dirt, stains, and residues without causing damage or etching to the stone surface. This is particularly important for maintaining the integrity and shine of your countertops over time.

What You'll Need:

  • Warm water

  • pH-neutral dish soap (such as [mention specific brands like Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day, Seventh Generation, etc.])

How to Create the Homemade Cleaning Solution:

  1. Fill a spray bottle or container with warm water.

  2. Add a few drops of pH-neutral dish soap to the water.

  3. Gently mix the solution to ensure the soap is evenly distributed.

When to Use the Homemade Solution

You can use this homemade cleaning solution regularly for routine maintenance of your countertops. It's ideal for removing everyday dirt, grease, food residues, and light stains. Simply spray the solution onto the countertop surface and wipe clean with a soft cloth or sponge. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry with a towel to prevent water spots.

Why It Works

The combination of warm water and pH-neutral dish soap creates a gentle yet effective cleaning solution that is safe for use on natural stone countertops. The warm water helps loosen dirt and grime, while the pH-neutral dish soap effectively removes stains and residues without causing any harm to the stone surface. This method not only keeps your countertops looking brand new but also helps prolong their lifespan.


Maintaining the pristine appearance of your custom countertops is easy with the right cleaning approach. By using a homemade solution of pH-neutral dish soap and warm water, you can keep your countertops looking brand new while preserving their beauty and durability. At National Stone, we're committed to providing you with tips and solutions to ensure your countertops remain a stunning focal point in your Las Vegas home.
