I have Uba Tuba and it seems impenetrable...doesn't seem to need sealing.

Lysol antibacterial kitchen cleaner spray and a microfiber cloth work great without streaks.

The people that installed our granite said to use Windex. It seems to work well.

this is one in the industry that is seen too often as a recomendation that shouldn't. and the reason is that though it will leave it nice and clean and leave a nice shine for a while after continued use it will remove any sealer and can actually etch the stone.

most chemical cleaners have the potential to etch granite because they are acidic cleaners. it is usually best to stay with formulated cleaners that are designed for granite
