A few months back, I did a few posts about “Maintaining the Dream” that focused on how to handle high-end materials such as stone and hardware in your home. Recently I was reading a back issue of “This Old House” magazine and came across a recommended product that is an all-natural beeswax formula that works well on honed stones. It is called Clapham’s Salad Bowl Finish.
It is intended as a food-safe finish for unfinished woods such as salad bowls and, in fact, this is how the Clapham company markets the product. However, it works great on honed stones. I purchased some and applied it to my seagrass limestone countertop in my bathroom and to my stone backsplash in my kitchen. Any old water spots instantly disappeared and the stone took on a beautiful, buttery luster! Being an all-natural product, there is no toxic odor or dry time. I used it months ago and the stone still looks like I just applied it yesterday. It’s a great product!
I get nothing from promoting it but I highly recommend it if you have honed stones in your home!
