I just looked up ways to naturally clean my granite countertops last week. I found some that said to use vinegar..but then some things I found said that vinegar was not good for granite and would slowly make it dull. Ok..not sure who to believe but suppose I'll stay away from the vinegar for now. Like the other commenter I found some that said to use rubbing alcohol. I didn't want to buy anything especially for this just yet. Instead..I used some dish detergent I already had in the house, just put some on a very soft cloth and got it wet and rubbed the counter top. Then I used another soft cloth to wipe up the solution and it looked awesome! It looked so much better than after I clean it with store bought stuff.
