Clean it very thoroughly (denatured alcohol).  A lot of it may be topical soils, grease, cleaning products, etc...  You can buff tin oxide with a felt pad, or simply use MB20 for a quick shine.

Another .02 to think about, I personally don't care for putting a topical on kitchen counters where they are laying food there.

You learned this in training, all you need to do is crystallize the granite without any powders and you will pop a great shine.

Hi Partners,


Last week, and on prior occasions, I've been asked about how to polish a granite counter top that has no apparent damage.  I know how to hone away damage and polish with granite polishing powders, but is there any product for polishing a granite countertop that has no scrathces or damage and is in very good shape?  Do we use the same polishing powders or is there any other product simpler to use?  The customer just wants to see the shine pop a little more, and I've been unable to provide a good answer.  Thanks for any advice.
