Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it like a pro:

  1. Gather your supplies, including a bucket, scrub brush or toothbrush, cleaning solution (either granite cleaner or a mixture of dish soap and water), rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, vinegar in a spray bottle, plastic gloves, eye protection, and a squeegee or microfiber cloth.
  2. Remove any debris from the surface of the fireplace using a dry brush or vacuum cleaner.
  3. Apply your cleaning solution to the surface of the fireplace using a scrub brush or toothbrush. Rinse with water and wipe dry with a clean microfiber cloth or squeegee.

  4. If you notice any stubborn stains, use rubbing alcohol or vinegar to clean them off. Apply the solution to the stain using a spray bottle and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping it away with a clean cloth.
  5. Polish the surface of your granite fireplace using a high-quality polishing compound or wax to buff out any scratches or imperfections.


The best way to clean a granite fireplace is by using a mixture of dish soap and water, followed by rubbing alcohol or vinegar for stubborn stains. Do not use bleach as it can cause discoloration and damage the surface of the stone.
