DIY Recipe for 409 Stone and Steel Cleaner?

Hello All, I'm a housekeeper and dearly love 409 Stone and Steel. Stone and Steel just works really well. I'm having a hard time finding 409 and when I do it's very expensive. My question is does anyone have a DIY recipe to share?

Looks like that is a very difficult cleaner to find. I saw this product mentioned and it was highly rated, so you might try it.

'Weiman's Granite And Stone Cleaner'

I also found a recipe for making granite and stone cleaner:

2 T. Vinegar
1 t. Borax
1/8 C. Dawn D/W Soap
1 C. Hot Water
Optional - 1 Drop Essential Oil

I hope this helps. :-)

From all I've read, one should NOT use vinegar on granite

It looks like this product may be either discontinued or on its way out as most stores are showing out of stock.

I did not see a DIY formula for this product and I'm not sure you will. If you still have a container you might check the ingredients and try to come up with your own solution.
The reason you may not find a DIY is because this product covers several different types of material and most of the DIY formulas are going to just cover one type cleaning.

This product is made by Clorox so you might try contacting them about where to buy and what plans they have for this product.

I did find some of this product listed online but it is going to be expensive.

Hope you find it from one of the stores listed. Stay healthy, and good luck.

Monique is correct... never use vinegar on granet or marble, as the acidic action of the vinegar will etch the surface of the stone and dull the surface shine.

I have found some good granite cleaners that people use at home on their granite countertops. I use to have this type of countertop but I no longer have it because it is too expensive where I live now. I asked my daughter what she uses on hers and she said she makes her own product and gave me this website. She recommends this and says it works so well. www.bobvila.com/.../
