how to clean white sealed limestone

maria-mirabellaJuly 23, 2007

I have very light honed and sealed limestone in my bathroom and want to know what is the best cleaning solution to use on this kind onf stone. It's very, very porous, and sealant did not protect it enough. It still darkens when gets wet. Is Windex safe? Or dishwashing detergent? Clorox for grout lines?

Please help.

Thanks. Maria

Don't ever use clorox! omg! Limestone needs special care. A pH neutral cleaner only. That means no Windex or vinegar either. Ask a stone dealer for advice, or use Shaklee Basic H2, which won't eat away at the finish, like other cleaners.
