Care, Conservation and Maintenance

How to treat or seal soapstone
Use standard mineral oil (like that purchased in a pharmacy). Rub it on the stone. Rub off any excess. Too much oil makes it look like wet. Over time, the mineral oil should be re-applied. Stone sealers have only limited effect on soapstone, compared to granite or slate.

 

Cleaning
Use a sponge and clean water, utilizing a neutral detergent, if necessary.

 

Water absorption
Soapstone is practically impenetrable.
Nothing can go down into this stone. It is not affected by alkalis or acids..

 

Heat resistance
One of the remarkable features of soapstone is its excellent capacity to resist extremes of temperature well below zero and above ±1000ºC (2000ºF).
