Dr. Bubbles and Your Soapstone
As I have discussed before, the care & maintenance for soapstone is minimal and very simple.¬†The most common way to keep your soapstone looking beautiful was by using mineral oil, until a better solution came about – Dry Wax.¬† There are many benefits to the wax such as:
- Eliminates the need for frequent oiling
- A completely food-safe blend of natural oils and waxes
- Mold and Mildew Resistant
- Not a petroleum-based product like mineral oil
- Eliminates 90% of soapstone countertop maintenance
As always, we try¬†to find ways to make it even better and easier for the client.¬† Dr. Bubbles has come to the rescue!¬† Dr. Bubbles is the best brand of 100% natural handmade soap, not to mention an incredible scientist! She has offered to help us at Garden State Soapstone create our own wax that will not only protect your soapstone¬†but bring out the beauty of¬†your countertop¬†unlike any other product.
First, we‚Äôll line up stone samples and apply all of the oils at once with rags (round 1).¬† We‚Äôll observe the stones and determine the following:¬† 1) how long the each oil remains on the stone and 2) the finish that each oil provides.¬† Once we determine which oil(s) provide the most preferable finishes, we‚Äôll eliminate the others and re-apply the selected oils (round 2).¬† We‚Äôll keep doing this until we‚Äôve decided what you like best.
