Linda Says:

Got Granite? Use a stone cleaner 1 time per week to polish and help seal it. Got Laminate like Formica? To freshen up an older counters, protect and restore the shine, apply a coat of paste car wax. Allow to dry to a haze and buff. Follow application directions on the wax you are using.
