Soapstone? Vinegar caused pitting
We had our bathroom remodeled last summer. I told our contractor I wanted a soapstone countertop. He found a remnant a couple of hours away, and I approved it via picture. I was never given a name for variety.
I cleaned it this weekend using straight household white vinegar. This caused pitting, as you can see in the picture.
I am not angry or upset. However, I was planning to use it in our kitchen but if it pits like this from plain vinegar, I'm not so sure.
Is this typical of soapstone? Perhaps I don't have true soapstone? Are some varieties susceptible to this kind of damage from vinegar while others are not?
Thank you for any insight going forward.
