Caring for this product

Gloss Finish

Wipe the surface after use with a cloth or a non scratch scourer sponge/pad and mild detergent. For stubborn food stains, use White King READY – TO USE light Bleach Spray bottle or a drop of undiluted White King Gel Bleach bottle and rinse with clean water. When you spot clean, please make sure you clean the whole surface as well.

SPECIAL NOTE: Quartz stones containing fragments of Mother of Pearl shell need extra care, as the shells are softer than the quartz material and not acid resistant. Therefore, caustic detergents (like Domestos), and bleach must not be used to clean these surfaces.

Grain Finish

Wipe the surface after use with a cloth or a sponge and mild detergent. For stubborn food stains and water ring marks wipe gently with a non scratch scourer sponge/pad as they occur using hot soapy water or use White King READY-TO- USE light Bleach spray bottle or a small drop of undiluted White King Gel bottle rinse with clean water. When you spot clean, please make sure you clean the whole surface as well.

SPECIAL NOTE:

We highly recommend Stone masons to use Lithofin MN, Stain-Stop, no-gloss sealer on all the Grain Matt (Super White13 and mid to dark colors) Jaipur, Juta, RocFace & Lunare slabs prior to cutting and Installing, to eliminate watermarks and sediments caused by recycled water.

HOT ITEMS: We recommend placing hot items (straight out the oven, microwave or from hot plate) onto a cutting board, and not directly onto any stone surface including granite, as this action may cause thermal shock within the material, which may be evidenced by the formation of fine hairline cracks. It is also not advisable to place electric Fry-pans, Grill and Woks directly onto stone surface for a similar reason, as some poorly designed appliances can overheat.

No stone is chip-proof, particularly at the sinks. It is tough but not Indestructible.

Gloss Finish Tiles

Caring for your tiles: We recommend the use of a neutral detergent, clean water, a clean mop, or a white polishing pad. For spot cleaning of sticky materials, like chewing gum, please use neutral solvents. For more stubborn stains, we recommend the use of White King READY -TO – USE light Bleach Spray bottle or a small drop of undiluted White King Gel bottle and mop with clean water.

In a commercial area, buffing up may be required in heavy traffic areas to minimize tracking. We therefore recommend a light water-based wax/sealer that will rejuvenate and enhance the appearance. Cleaning products that contain Xylem, Toluene (contained in paint thinners and oven cleaners), Potassium Hydroxide or Caustic Soda should not be used.

SPECIAL NOTE: QuartzStone tiles containing fragments of Mother of Pearl shell need extra care as the shells are softer than the quartz material and not acid resistant. Therefore, cleaning products containing bleach or caustic soda should not be used.
