HOME Slate Worktops - Care and maintenance
We recommend sealing your slate with Dry Treat Intensifia:  


Precautions:
·
Do not hit the slate with heavy objects (any natural stone will chip or get damaged)
·
Do not stand or sit on your worksurface
·
Do not use solvents, bleach or alcohol.
·
Limit the use of detergents and avoid the aggressive ones (such as cleansing products for ovens,
          grills, dishwashers etc) and the acid ones.
·
Do not use pickling substances, caustic soda, or products with a high pH value; do not allow powerful
          chemical agents, decolourants or paint removers to come into contact with the stone.
·
Do not place objects on the surface which have been removed from the hob.
·
Do notcut directly on the worktop.. Use a chopping board.
·
Do not drag heavy appliances across the worktop. Significant scratches are extremely difficult to
          deal with.
·
Do not use worktops as a workbench or stand on them for access (to replace lights for example);
          it is dangerous for you and bad for the granite.
·
Do not leave hot or greasy pans sitting on the surface.

Do:
·
Wipe up spillages immediately with a clean cloth.
·
Dry up water splashes; leaving water spillages to dry naturally (for example, around taps) could,
          over time, lead to unsightly lime scale deposits especially in hard-water areas.
·
Use a chopping board to prevent damage to the worktops (its also kinder to your knives).
·
Use a trivet (pan stand) to support hot pans.
·
After use, wipe down the surfaces with a clean damp cloth, a little soap in the wiping water may
          be desirable but frequent washing with copious amounts of water is not recommended.
