Cleaning granite countertops can be tricky. You really aren't supposed to use cleaners with vinegar, lemon, orange or ammonia. You also need to stay away from using store bought glass and kitchen cleaners too. This Homemade Granite Cleaner is safe for granite countertops and will leave them clean and sanitized.
With just a few sprays of this homemade granite countertop cleaner, you can keep your counters clean and stain free!

What you will need:
2 Cups of Distilled Water
3 Tablespoons of Isopropyl Alcohol (Purchase HERE)
¼ Teaspoon of Castile Soap (Purchase HERE)
Optional items I used in this post:
Clean 16 oz. Spray Bottle (Purchase HERE)
Kitchen Funnel (Purchase HERE)
Microfiber Cleaning Cloth (Purchase HERE)
Start by pouring 2 cups of water into a clean spray bottle using a funnel.
Next, add 3 Tablespoons of Isopropyl Alcohol. This helps the cleaner to clean and dry quickly without absorbing into the granite.
Then add ¼ Teaspoon of Castile Soap which will help remove any dirt or residue.
Shake well before each use. Spray a generous amount on your granite and wipe away using a clean microfiber cloth.

Can I add peppermint to this? We have a problem with ants and would like to try this on our granite counters to see if it will work. Thanks!
Jess have you tried your granite cleaner on ceramic floor tiles?

Do you think this is okay for quartz as well?
