Preparation: Make sure all surfaces not meant to be treated are covered and/or taped for their protection.
Approximate Coverage: 4 to 6 sq ft per lb depending on porosity of stone.
Directions for use:
1. Wet the area to be treated, then apply paste to surface 1/8 to 1/4 inches thick using a trowel, airless sprayer or other suitable applicator.
2. Cover the poultice with plastic film and let stay for 24 hours. It will cling to the surface. Tape down the edges.
3. Remove the plastic and allow poultice to dry. This is the most important part. As it dries, it will draw the stain from the surface.

Insert a corrosion-resistant spatula, trowel or other suitable scraping device under the paste, and carefully lift from the surface. Non-metal tools are preferred to avoid scratching the surface. Remove as much residue as possible.
5. Rinse the surface thoroughly with fresh water, using a sponge, soft cloth or low-pressure/low-volume water-rinsing equipment.

Does this product remove organic stains?
Yes. Our stone stain remover is designed to remove stains from food and other organic sources that may end up on your granite countertop. It works particularly well for oil stains and can be used to remove wine, coffee, urine, cooking grease, olive oil, and other organic stains.
Why are my natural stone surfaces becoming stained?
All stones are generally considered absorbent, subject to exceptions. Due to their natural absorbency, most natural stones absorb liquids. Therefore, a true stain will occur if such liquids are staining agents. It is vital to note that an actual stain should be darker than the stained surface. Sealants are generally applied on granite countertops to prevent the stone from absorbing the liquids it comes into contact with. Still, if you’re noticing deep-seated stains on your granite countertop, it may be because the sealant has worn off. This is often an indication that your granite surfaces need to be resealed.

Baking soda, typically mixed with hydrogen peroxide, is often recommended as a home remedy for removing stains from granite. While it may remove stains superficially, a poultice powder is necessary for stain removal when oil-based stains have soaked deep into the stone.
