$7 for a 12 ounce bottle of granite cleaner?  No thanks.

Most everyone knows not to use Windex and the like on granite.  Avoid citrus, vinegar and other acids that we use in other DIY cleaners as well or you’ll etch your lovely counters.

Water itself will leave your counters streaky, so make your life easy with a $.99 spray bottle and a few normal household items:

  1. 12-16 ounces of water
  2. 2-3 ounces of rubbing alcohol
  3. a few drops of Dawn soap

Wish to get fancy?  Add a few drops of essential oils to cover up the alcohol smell.

Like anything, the quality of the water does make a difference.   Put your reverse osmosis water free of dissolved solids to task on this one.
