Limestone

Care
Gentle, regular cleaning is recommended. Dust off the surface regularly and wipe down the tabletop with a damp cloth when needed. If necessary, add a mild, acid-free detergent. Remove the detergent with a clean damp cloth. Limestone does not tolerate any kind of acid (juice, wine, ketchup etc.) – it is a sensitive material and should be treated cautiously. Always use coasters for drinking glasses.

 

Don’t place hot items directly from the hob onto the limestone tabletop. Always use trivets when placing hot items, such as pots and pans on the limestone. Note that high temperatures of cookware can even pass through the trivet and damage the surface of the limestone. 

 

Stain removal
Remove the stain immediately using a lint-free cleaning cloth with warm water and a mild detergent. Avoid using dusting sprays or abrasive cleaners. In case of serious damage contact a professional polisher.  

 

Note on Limestone (Jura Grau Blau and Luget)
Limestone is rich in fossils, glass veins, crystals, and sand holes (mainly Luget limestone). Some sand holes might appear on the edge of the tabletop which, after mechanical treatment, we chose not to fill with resin but keep as part of the product’s natural and unique expression.


In general, tabletops made of limestone is characterized by a rustic appearance that spans in hues from warm, golden tones to cold, grey tones. Glass veins can appear as cracks but are simply a natural characteristic of the stone. 

Please note: For efficient use of the stone and with respect for natural resources, Vipp allows the use of resin (epoxy) to close some of the natural cracks and holes in the tabletops.
