Coulon Stone offer advise on the most hygienic stone surfaces to help make the job easier…

With most of us are spending more time at home than ever before, we’re finding ourselves constantly cleaning. This may have left you looking around your house wishing certain parts were easier to keep clean. This might include the kitchen worktop. We’re preparing more food at home, the washing up never ends and we’re wiping the worktops every few hours – so it would be nice to have a surface with built in hygiene qualities that takes just seconds to clean. Well, below are some natural and man-made stone surfaces that are just that! 

Granite  – When picking a natural material to use as your kitchen worktop, granite is by far the most superior choice, particularly in regards to hygiene and maintenance. Made from molten rock compressed over millions of years its non-porous properties act as a shield against germs which can be easily and quickly wiped away with disinfectant. Granite is particularly effective against bacteria if re-sealed every few years. Whereas wood, another popular natural surface material, which expands and contracts due to changes in temperature and humidity is porous, therefore making it difficult to get rid of all the bacteria trapped on its surface. 

Lapitec – This is the hardest surface material on the market. It’s a man-made stone created by firing minerals at over 1200C, giving it a similar chemistry to granite but with increased durability. It’s completely non-porous therefore resistant to staining, mould and bacteria. It’s also resistant to acids so the surface can’t be worn away by acidic foods and chemicals, including cleaning products like bleach. 

Composite Quartz – These surfaces are made up of 90% natural quartz making them extremely hard. Similarly to granite their almost completely non-porous making them a great choice for busy kitchens as germs can be easily wiped away. Composite quartz surfaces are popular because of the huge variety in design choice.

Hello Readers,Welcome to the October issue! How seasonal is our front cover image! It literally makes me want to jump in and snuggle into one of those jumpers. I love autumn, all the colours and crisp mornings, although summer does seem to have made a late appearance this year doesn’t it, with this gorgeous weather we’ve been having recently. The perfect weather for tending to our gardens before the cold snap returns. If you are a keen gardener, be sure to turn to our ‘Over the Garden Gate’ feature on page 28 by our resident contributor, Lucie Ponsford of Mimosa design.I also wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate our Abingdon Air & Country Show 2021 competition winners, Robert Grimes, Christina Brooks both from Chinnor and Katie Thomas of Chalgrove. I hope they and their families had a great time at this event as it returned for the first time since the pandemic.Whilst on the subject of events, Chinnor and Thame Friends of the Earth are hosting a Swap Shop and Bike Exchange at Chinnor Village Hall on Saturday 10th from 10:00am - Midday and Autumn Green Fayre at Thame Town Hall on Sunday 30th from 10:00am to 3:00pm. For more information on either of these events please contact Maureen Dyroff on 01844 352816 or chinnorthamefoe@gmail.com. We also have Halloween to enjoy (or avoid) later this month which was great last year in our local villages as lots of houses got really involved in turning their homes into ghostly haunts and leaving treats outside their doors. If anyone is looking for Window Stickers or Vinyl Decals to dress their windows for this spooky affair please visit my other businesses Facebook Page - Scratch-em & Vinyl as we have a vast selection of creepy designs available.And don’t forget to turn your clocks back an hour on Sunday 31st at 2:00am.As always, Stay safe, continue to shop and support local...Love Emma xTo read this Edition, click here: https://issuu.com/looklocalmagazineoxonedition/docs/octt21_issue107_32pg_web_version ...
