Using different testing categories is how we achieve accurate results after 35 years of testing products. We use the categories to narrow down the top items that we recommend to consumers. When reviewing the most useful granite cleaning products in the industry, we created testing categories that include odor, application, and efficiency.
Odor: We reviewed the scent or odor of each granite cleaning product to determine if it was pleasant to smell or if it overpowered the room. We also rated the products based on if they smelled natural or like chemicals.
Application: The ease of use of each granite cleaner was one of the main factors that was reviewed, which made us create the application category. We evaluated how easy it was to spray onto granite and if it was easy to wipe up.
Efficiency: The results that each product delivered allowed us to narrow down our options and select our top picks. We looked at how well the formulas polished granite, cleaned the surfaces, and if any residue or streaks were left behind. We also looked at the texture and evaluated if it was overly thick or greasy.
