granite question

Have a granite top in the bathroom, and around the 3pc taps, the black granite is sort of discolored whiteish color... just about 1/4" around the taps, where I would assume water collects...
Its not a build up, almost looks like a stain in the sealer or stone it self
anyone else experience this, and have a solution to clean it??

Most likely it is from soap and toothpaste and talcum powder and all of the other crap people use in a bathroom. Granite has pores and the stuff can get into the stone. Get a stone cleaner and clean it off, then seal the granite and be more meticulous when cleaning around the faucets.

Good advice. If the cleaner doesn't get it all out, the residue might be hard water deposits from a leaky faucet stem. In that case, CLR or similar might work.
