Acetone/nail polish remover, or abrasive cleaners such as Vim® Cream cleaners, Bar Keepers Friend® Soft Cleanser, or Mr. Clean® Magic Eraser® is never to be used on your surface as dull spots can occur and is not covered under warranty.

Do not use natural stone cleaners, sealants, or enhancer on your countertop.
