|LivingStone Care and Maintenance
It's easy to take care
Just follow these tips to keep LivingStone surfaces
looking as beautiful as the day they were installed.
Remove dirt and residue with soapy water
or an ammonia-based cleaner. Rinse and wipe dry.
Prevent hard water marks by wiping
surfaces dry after spills or cleaning. Ordinary vinegar
removes most dried water spots.
Remove stubborn stains with full strength
bleach or a liquid cleanser such as Soft Scrub with
Bleach. Rinse with clear water and wipe dry. Avoid
strong acidic products such as toilet or oven cleaners.
Disinfect by wiping surfaces with mixture of one
part water / one part household bleach. Rinse with
clear water and wipe dry.
Clean sinks and lavatories the same way
you clean your countertop. Or use Soft Scrub
liquid cleanser and a green Scotch-Brite pad. Rub
over the entire sink to blend in the finish.
Prevent heat damage by using trivets or
hot pads under hot objects. Prolonged or extreme
heat can cause discoloring. Also, allow cookware to
cool before placing in a solid-surface sink.
Prevent other damage by not exposing
your countertop to strong chemicals, such as paint
removers, oven cleaners, etc. If contact does occur,
rinse immediately and thoroughly with clear water.
If you spill nail polish on a LivingStone surface,
remove it with a non-acetone polish remover.
Don't cut directly on LivingStone surfaces.
Always run your faucet while pouring boiling water
down solid surface sinks.
Remove minor cuts & scratches
yourself with abrasive Scotch-Brite pads. Roughest
to finest are green, peach, lilac, blue and gray. Start
with a green pad. Wet the surface and rub in a small
circular motion over the scratch or cut. Rinse pad
When the scratch or cut is removed, wet the surface
again and rub with progressively finer pads in larger
and larger circles until the renewed area blends in with
the surrounding surface. Rinse with clear water and
wipe dry. Rinse pads and air dry before storing.
