The Advantages of Soapstone

Soapstone is an underrated high-performance countertop material composed primarily of talc, silicate, chlorite and magnesium. Although it feels soft to the touch, it is strong, durable, and resistant to damage from heat or chemicals. Because soapstone is nonporous, most substances cannot penetrate the surface, which means it will not stain.

How to Care for Soapstone

With age and use, soapstone naturally darkens. To keep give the darkening of soapstone a more even appearance, apply mineral oil or wax. With proper care, soapstone can easily last for many years. Most scratches can be removed with light sanding.

Professional Soapstone Restoration

Professional care and restoration for soapstone are not needed as often as for other types of natural stone. If you do have a scratch too deep to sand out or you want to skip the mineral oil or wax and start with a like-new lighter finish, a stone restoration professional can resurface your soapstone.
