Soapstone, A Beautiful & Practical Stone
Heat and acids like tomatoes and lemon juice won’t damage soapstone, and its density makes it impenetrable by bacteria and stains. However, soapstone is not impervious to damage. For example, improper installation methods or aggressive use can result in chips or cracks. In addition, soapstone can become scratched, because it is a very soft stone.
Soapstone Repair and Restoration
Light scratches will disappear with a direct dab of FDA approved food-grade mineral oil or soapstone enhancer. But deep, heavy scratches, chips, cracks, or other damage repairs, as well as professional refinishing, require the attention of a stone restoration contractor familiar with the unique qualities of soapstone.
