Soapstone is a naturally occurring stone that offers beauty and versatility for your West Michigan home’s kitchen countertops. You can enjoy the natural soft gray or treat it with mineral oil for a darker, richer color.

what fits

Your Style

Soapstone is a softer, natural stone with an unrefined charm that has gray and black tones and can have hints of greens and blue undertones. It’s a very popular option for kitchens due to its natural beauty. It can be left as is or treated with mineral oil which can enhance the movement and deepen the color to a darker, richer tone. Soapstone countertops are very soft and will scratch very easily. If a patina look is desired you’ll love this material. If not, just sand out scratches and treat with mineral oil and you’ll be back in business!

Caring for your

Soapstone Countertops

Soapstone is extremely soft and will scratch very easily. Most soapstone scratches can be easily disguised or removed using mineral oil (for smaller scratches) or sandpaper (for larger scratches). In their natural state, most soapstones are a soft gray. When treated with mineral oil, this color can be enhanced to a darker, richer, and more uniform state. While many homeowners choose to oil soapstone to enhance its natural color and movement, this is not necessary. In fact, many people prefer the look of untreated soapstone.

  • Your new countertops can simply be cleaned with warm soapy water or any PH balanced cleaner and a soft sponge or cloth. No material (including quartz) is completely stain proof, so spills should be wiped up right away. Avoid using acidic cleaners that contain vinegar, lemon juice, bleach or ammonia. Avoid abrasive brushes, sponges, or dry cleansers. Rock Solid Granite Co seals all natural stones with a penetrating sealer to prevent staining. Your sealer will last 10+ years if you are using the right cleaners. 
  • Granite and quartz are both very hard materials which make them resistant to scratching. However, to avoid damage, refrain from using knives, screw drivers and other sharp objects directly on the surface. It’s best not to cut or chop directly on the surface. Never cut on marble, dolomite, or soapstone. 
  • All materials can chip or crack (even quartz) so take care in your kitchen, especially with heavy items in your sink.
