Q. Do you know of a product that will get rid of the hard water stains on my granite vanity top (it's really bad around the faucet fixtures)? I look forward to hearing from you.
A: A good quality, stone safe soap film remover will be effective at getting rid of hard water deposits as well as soap scum. Sometimes a razor blade may be necessary as well to shave off the some of the build up. This product is available at MB Stone Care, our recommended resource for excellent quality stone and tile care products.
