    Tim, what do I do if water is already been absorbed into the granite? Should I still seal it or should I wait until it completely dries before I seal it? If wait, how long will it take to dry? If I seal it, will it dry from the bottom side? Thank you.

    HI,

    I was just reading your blog and found it very informative. I have this problem and need your advice.

    We have just got Ivory Brown granite fixed as countertop and backsplash in our kitchen. We have seen dark spots where water spills but it evaporates soon.

    Could you name a few good brands of granite sealers please?

    Appreciate any inputs you can provide.

    What's in a granite sealer, though? Is it mineral oil solution, like a lapidary sealer? Is it a plastic? What compounds are in it? How do I know it won't rub off onto my foods or hands?

    I don't see anyone answering these questions, it's frustrating!

    I've read that you do not need to seal black granite. I have black with gold specks in it. Is it the that I do not have to seal it and, if so, why.
    Thanks

    Hi. I did not do my research and now I own a Juparana Colombo granite counter-top. Beautiful stone but sooo porous. To date I tried 3 coats of Dupont heavy duty sealer and 1 of 511 Miracle Porous Plus sealer. Everything by the instructions from each manufacturer. I used denatured alcohol just before application. So, clean with countertop cleaner, wait 24 hrs, wipe with alcohol, first coat of Dupont, wait 2 hrs, second, 2 hours, third, wait 1 hr buff with cloth. Left it some 3 days then tested with grease, left a spot. Researched some more, found the 511, so some 6 days later, clean again, alcohol, 1 coat of 511. Regardless, I put a drop of grease on it, it leaves a mark. Is there any hope for sealing this counter-top? Thanks.
