Stone Restore NC

Stone Restore NC (Neutral Cleaner) is a general purpose restoration cleaner for sensitive limestone, marble and travertine surfaces.


This product is specifically developed for use on chemically sensitive architectural stone surfaces. While it can be used for horizontal concrete surfaces, Presto’s Stone Restore® HD and Stone Restore® A+ are better suited for projects needing a more aggressive cleaner. This product is safe on glass and anodized aluminum frames.


  • Eradicates stains without harsh chemicals
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Safe on sensitive stone surfaces, as well as metal frames and glass
  • Suitable for outdoor and indoor use
  • Low odor


Stone Restore NC is designed for light-duty cleaning only.


This product is suitable for use on horizontal or vertical surfaces. 


500 to 15,000 feet per 5 gallon pail depending on dilution rate. 


This product is designed for use on limestone, marble, travertine and other calcium- based stones.


We recommend the use of one of Presto's stone protective treatments to protect the newly restored surface for years:


  • Protective gear
  • Running water
  • Chemical sprayer
  • Pressure washer (optional)
  • Stone brush (optional)


Dilute product depending on the application as follows: For horizontal concrete, dilute product 5 to 1 with water. For removal of grease and grime, dilute 1 to 4 with water. For light stains, dilute up to 1 oz. product with 1 gal. of water.

Protect unintended surfaces from contact, including traffic and pedestrian areas below the project, electric tools, fabrics, furniture, fixtures and plants. Always test in a small, inconspicuous area prior to use.


Wet the surface prior to application and have running water available to keep the surface damp. Apply an even coat of cleaner using a low pressure (40 psi max.), chemical-resistant sprayer. Starting at the bottom, work the product upward, spreading an even coat on the surface. Keep area wet with Stone Restore NC to loosen soil. Immediately rinse any unintended surfaces, such as glass or frames.

Allow cleaner to penetrate the surface for 10-20 minutes, but do not allow surface to dry. 

After product has saturated the stone, rinse using a pressure washer and a white, 40-degree tip or a green, 25- degree tip. Keep the tip as far away from the surface as possible. If a pressure washer is not available, use a brush to help loosen stubborn soils. For best results, rinse using heated, deionized water.

Always rinse the area thoroughly to ensure no product is left behind. Multiple applications may be required for heavily soiled, porous or absorbent surfaces, and should be applied immediately after the initial application. Follow the same instructions for each application.

Situations including various stone types or different natured stains may require multiple products. Presto’s stone cleaning line includes:
  • Stone Restore® HD For difficult to remove mineral stains caused by efflorescence, rusting, red clay, iron and more 
  • Stone Restore® A+ For heavy stains caused by oil, grease, grime and environmental pollution 
  • Stone Restore® CT A multi-purpose stone cleaner that removes a variety of stains from all types of stone materials 

Use as directed. Stone Restore NC may cause discoloration on stone surfaces or affect adhesion of water repellants if not removed completely. Never let this product dry on the surface.
