If you want to make your soapstone countertop or sink darker, you can simply apply some mineral oil. Periodic application of mineral oil will help it develop a dark patina and enhance the natural aging process of your soapstone. Many customers choose to leave the stone un-treated to keep the lighter grey color.
Applying Oil to Your Soapstone Once mineral oil is applied, the stone will turn into a very dark charcoal gray, sometimes black.
Unlike the upkeep of other stone, stainless steel and copper sinks, any common household cleaner can be used to clean soapstone surfaces. Chemicals and acids do not harm it. However, we do recommend that you use regular soap and water because harsher solvents may remove the mineral oil treatment, therefore generating more maintenance. Soapstone, being softer than granite and marble, is also more prone to scratches. The great advantage is that any scratches can be easily removed with a light sanding and/or mineral oil. Light scratches can be hidden by lightly applying some water and sanding to the area in order to remove the scratch. With a small piece of coarse sandpaper, sand the scratch area in a circular motion and until the scratch is almost gone, then using a smoother sandpaper do the same thing but this time using water.
