We just purchased a new home and spent a lot of money on black granite tile countertops. We were told that we can only clean them with soap and water and not to use any other products on them. When we purchased the granite tile we were told it was very durable. After living in the home less than 2 weeks we now have three rings on our countertops where glasses were set. I am dissapointed and cannot get the rings off. Is my $8000.00 countertop ruined? Is granite not durable. I was never told to seal it now I see on the websites it says granite should be sealed. How can I remove these rings? It is almost as though they are etched in. I am feeling like my granote countertops that were sold to me as "the most durable countertop product" are going to hard to maintain. Please help! I am sick over this and losing a lot of sleep!
