  1. Remove food debris

    Make sure the stone is room temperature, and set it on your work surface. Brush away food debris with a natural-bristle cleaning brush. If the stone has stubborn, baked-on debris, scour those areas with coarse sandpaper, and brush away the residue.

  2. Wipe the stone

    Dip a nylon pad in water, wring it out, and rub it over the stone. Rinse the stone under running water.

  3. Treat stains with baking soda paste

    Pour several tablespoons of baking soda into a small bowl, and add enough water to make a thick paste. Stir the mixture with a toothbrush, and brush it over the stains. Leave the paste on the stone for five minutes, and then rinse the stone.

  4. Dry the stone

    Dry the stone with a towel, and lay the towel on your work surface. Set the stone on the towel, and leave it there for several hours before using it again.
