Yet typical disinfectants, while effective at killing most viruses, pose a threat to natural-stone surfaces – damaging counters, floors, vanities, shower walls and other stone areas, leading to costly repair and replacement. The experts who make cleaning and maintaining granite, marble and other natural-stone surfaces in the home quick and easy created a solution to help families protect against the spread of flu and other viruses and from damaging their stone surfaces.

Just in time for flu season, Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes are the only convenient, disposable wipes that kill germs and will not harm sealed stone surfaces. With 35 wipes per package, they are approved by the EPA for use on sealed stone surfaces and are also suitable for use on counter tops, sinks, faucets, appliance exteriors, bathtubs, toilets and showers, doorknobs, glazed tiled floors, and children's toys. Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes are 99.9% effective in killing household bacteria, including influenza A virus, influenza B virus, Salmonella enterica, Staphylococcus aureus and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

“There's nothing worse than seeing your kids suffer from the flu bug,” said Lenny Sciarrino, president/CEO and co-founder of Granite Gold Inc., and the father of three young children. “Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes help prevent the spread of flu and other contagious viruses, but won't hurt sealed stone surfaces like common disinfectants do.”

Granite Gold Disinfecting Wipes are designed to disinfect, not clean. After letting the application sit on the surface for at least five minutes, rinse with potable water and then clean. The wipes are available nationally at participating True Value Hardware and Ace Hardware stores, select Bed Bath & Beyond stores and regional grocery chains such as Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, Cub Foods, Giant of Carlisle, Giant of Landover and Stop & Shop. Customers can find more retail locations at Suggested retail price is $4.99-$6.99.

About Granite Gold

Granite Gold is the brainchild of cousins Lenny Sciarrino and Lenny Pellegrino, whose grandfather moved to the United States in the 1950s, bringing with him an Italian heritage synonymous with expertise in the stone industry that he passed on to generations. Pellegrino took that upbringing to build Pellegrino Stone Care; Sciarrino ran the operations of his family business, European Wholesale Countertops.
