You cannot just clean that granite like any other kitchen surface. It needs a little more lovin'.

A lot of us here in the Granite State use that rock for our countertops, but it takes a bit more work to keep it clean and shiny.

Bill Norton from CYR Kitchen & Bath showed us how to properly clean and maintain a granite countertop in your kitchen. Taking the right steps is important to ensuring the long life of that granite surface.

This lesson was inspired by the $43,500 towards Kitchen Makeover from CYR that we are offering in our Online Spring Auction this week. We are also auctioning off a Harley Davidson motorcycle, furniture and landscaping deals all this week.

Bidding has just begun and ends on Friday, April 3 at 7 p.m. See what CYR Kitchen & Bath has to offer with their makeover deal.
