Supplies and Tools:
Clean polishing rags
Tilelab Surface Guard Penetrating Sealer (1 U.S. Gal)
We just moved into our new home and the new kitchen had brand new granite slabs for the new counter tops in the kitchen. A mild polishing agent was used before the stone arrived at my home. The additional sealer should keep it sealed for up to six months. The sealer will aid against food for example red beets. Since it sealed when the beets are cooked the liquid seems to get on everything, but I do not worry if it 's on the counter top because we purchased good quality sealer.
This shows the five steps to seal granite slabs, this job should be done every six months.
Step 1: Remove everything on the counter tops. Fig.1 shows the Tilelab Surface Guard Penetrating Sealer used to seal these counter tops.

Step 2: Above right Fig.2 shows a clean rag on the granite counter top. Using a clean rag will aid in applying the granite sealer and removing any foggy mess from the sealer.
Step 3: Fig.3 shows the dining room side notice the cabinet lamp that was installed.
