How can sandstone/stone coasters be cleaned? Softscrub and Mr. Clean aren't effective.
By Lawrence from Thomasville, GA
I soak mine in hot water with a little dishwasing soap and a splash of bleach.

What do I use to clean my absorbent stone coasters? My coasters have off-white "frames" around the perimeter which have gotten stained from various beverages. I've tried Clorox and OxiClean, but haven't had great success. Any suggestions?
I wonder if soaking them with a denture tablet might work? Has anyone tried it? (01/13/2005)
If you still have to box that they came in the instructions for cleaning are there. Basically place the coasters in a glass baking dish w/out stacking them. Cover with water, and add a 1/4 cup of regular Clorox, wait 25 minutes or until the stains disappear, rinse the stone coasters and use a white towel or white paper towels and allow the excess water to pull out.
