However, there is a more recommended technique to polishing your worktop; you’ll use your granite cleaner and granite polisher for this one. First clean the surfaces with your granite worktop make sure you clean it thoroughly and carefully. After drying it off with a rag, you’ll use your granite polisher. Apply the polisher on your granite countertop surface and let it seep through. Do not be deceived, even though these are the best qualities of polishers, the granite surfaces are still susceptible to residue settling in and the surfaces can turn dull over time. However, that is very rare.
To make sure that the polisher has done its effect on the surface, pour a little water on the countertop.
