General Patch and Stone Mantel Cleaning Information

Our Designer Collection of stone mantels come with a powder patch kit intended for filling screw/attachment holes, but it can be used to make minor repairs, as well.  Since it dries quickly, mix it in small batches, using about 1 tablespoon of powder adding several drops of water mixing until it's the consistency of peanut butter, then fill in holes, cracks, chipped areas.  The patch kit will better match the surrounding stone color after it has thoroughly dried.  Additional patch powder can be purchased, if needed, and, a stone-color-specific dye is available for our Designer Collection, which can be mixed with water and dabbed onto the stone. 

To clean the scuff marks and dirt from the stone surface, we recommend a small amount of a clear mild dish soap mixed with water water, using a clean white cloth to dab the scuff marks away.  Use just about any clear household cleaner.  Also, stubborn stains and marks can be gently sanded away using 150-grit sandpaper.
