Lithostone requires very little maintenance to keep the surface looking like new.
For everyday routine cleaning of Lithostone, we recommend wiping the surface with soapy water (a mild detergent) and a damp cloth.
To avoid damage to Lithostone it is recommended that cutting food only on an appropriate cutting board, as the hardness of the surface may blunt knives or even damage the stone.
As Lithostone is virtually non- porous it will keep its lustrous gloss and ultra smooth surface without polishing, and it never needs sealing.
Lithostone will tolerate brief exposures to moderately hot temperatures, however prolonged direct contact with or radiated heat from very hot pots may cause thermal shock, discoloration and/or damage. Therefore we do not recommend placing hot pots, pans, electric frying pans and oven trays directly from the hotplate or out of the oven onto the surface.
Tough? Yes. Indestructible? No
As with any surface, Lithostone can be permanently damaged by exposure to strong chemicals and solvents that undermine its physical properties.
Do not use products that contain trichlotherane or methylene chloride, such paint removers or strippers.
Avoid any highly aggressive cleaning agents like oven cleaner that can have high alkaline/ph levels should the surface be accidentally exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect.
