How to Polish Granite Surfaces with Life O' Wood

1. Preparation:
Before you start polishing, make sure to clean the granite surface with a soft cloth and mild granite cleaner to remove any dirt, debris, or stains. This will ensure that the polish adheres evenly to the granite surface.

2. Application:
Shake the bottle well and apply a small amount of Life O' Wood Multi-surface Polish to a clean, soft cloth. Gently rub the polish onto the granite surface in a circular motion, working in small sections at a time.

3. Buffing:
After applying the polish, use a clean, dry cloth to buff the surface in the direction of the grain. This will help remove any excess polish and enhance the shine of the granite.


Tips for Polishing Granite Surfaces

• Test First:
Before applying Life O' Wood to an entire granite surface, it's always a good idea to test a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure compatibility and desired results.

• Avoid Overuse:
A little goes a long way with Life O' Wood Multi-surface Polish. Overusing the product can result in a sticky residue, so use sparingly and buff well.

• Use Gentle Pressure:
When applying and buffing the polish, use gentle pressure to avoid scratching or damaging the granite surface.


Pitfalls and Misbeliefs about Polishing Granite Surfaces

• Not All Granite is the Same:
Different types of granite have different characteristics and may require specific care. For example, polished granite has a smooth, glossy finish, while honed granite has a matte or satin finish. Always make sure to read the manufacturer's recommendations for cleaning and polishing specific types of granite.

• Using Acidic or Abrasive Cleaners:
Some people believe that acidic or abrasive cleaners are necessary to remove stubborn stains and scratches from granite. However, these cleaners can actually damage the surface of granite and should be avoided. Life O' Wood Multi-surface Polish offers a gentle yet effective solution for cleaning and polishing granite surfaces without causing damage.

Neglecting to clean the granite surface before applying polish can result in a streaky finish and uneven application. Always make sure to clean the surface thoroughly before polishing.
