With simple care, Roman Stone will retain its radiant, lustrous appearance for many years. For routine cleaning, use a damp cloth or paper towel and, if necessary, a small amount of non-bleach, nonabrasive cleanser.
Even though Roman Stone resists permanent staining when exposed to liquids such as wine, vinegar, tea, lemon juice and soda or fruits and vegetables, wipe up food and liquid spills as soon as possible.
For stubborn or dried spills, use a nonabrasive cleaning pad such as a white 3M Scotch-Brite® scrub pad coupled with Formula 409® Glass & Surface Cleaner or a comparable cleaning product.
Avoid using cleansers that contain bleach. Always follow the cleaner manufacturer's use instructions and exercise proper care when handling and storing any cleaning products.
Preventing Heat and Other Damage :
Roman Stone can withstand exposure to normal cooking temperatures from pots, pans and dishes without being damaged. To maintain the beauty of Roman Stone, do not place hot skillets or roasting pans directly onto the surface. We recommend the use of trivets and hot pads.
Removing Difficult Spills :
Sometimes spills occur and dry on the countertop. For materials that harden as they dry (such as gum, food, grease, nail polish or paint), remove by gently scraping away the excess with a plastic putty knife.
