I just got beautiful granite countertops. What do I use for daily regular cleaning?

When we had ours installed we were told to only use soap and water. Did you have them sealed? That makes a difference too.

Seal them with a sealer from Home Depot. It's easy. Just paint it on.

I have a homemade cleaner that leaves them streak-free. I'll be home by Monday; I can post the recipe then.

Installers told us to use Windex WITHOUT ammonia only.

Sometimes I use Method. It smells nice. Sometimes I use an alcohol/water mixture. Mostly, just soap and water.
