I have recently purchased a 1927 Tudor in WA and am trying to restore
the home. The fireplace has what appears to be original granite tile
(5X5) (at least I think it's granite) for the hearth that has a few
small chips, but is generally in good condition, except for the
granite is completely dull and dingy. I've tried a few cleaning
products, but the tile still looks old and grungy. I don't want to
replace the hearth and think the granite would look great, but it
definitely needs to be cleaned with something stronger than I'm using
or needs to be polished somehow.
Any suggestions out there?
