How do I clean my monument? If you have a black granite monument, one of the best ways to clean the monument is car wash cleaner and a soft sponge. It is very important to make sure that all of the soap comes off of the monument, just like a black car if soap is left it will spot.
If you have a gray granite or marble monument; a brush, bucket of water and a cap full of bleach to a gallon of water will clean the monument.
