Great stuff - Look no further
on September 11, 2014
I wanted to wait a while before giving a review. This product seems to live up to its name. I cleaned a section of my dark granite countertop thoroughly, then applied the product to the dry granite. (I used a 3-4" sponge brush to apply it uniformly. I can't think of a better way to apply such a sealant.) I waited approx. 30 minutes for it to dry, then removed the residue well with soft bath towels. It took some time and muscle to do it well. The granite was noticeably smoother and slicker than the untreated areas. Weeks later, it still felt smooth and sealed, after many wipe-ups with damp dish towels.
I also used the product on the rather porous tile backsplash and grout. This type of application is not meant to be wiped down afterward. I suppose if your backsplash is a shiny ceramic/stone, it would be appropriate to wipe off the residue after it dries. On my porous, stone tile and grout, I noted that the product caused it to darken dramatically upon application. I crossed my fingers it would lighten back up after drying, and it did - completely. The tile and backsplash now has a distinctly smooth, protectively-coated feeling. I am confident this product will be a great protectant from moisture for my granite and stone tile work. A little goes a long way, so you can do a lot of sealing with this purchase. I highly recommend it!
