Slate and Honed Black Granite Countertops -- Do they stain or not? Do they need constant wiping down to look good?

rlt | Jan 5, 201106:10 AM

I've been carefully reading all the posts about countertops, but I'm still confused as to whether honed slate or honed black granite countertops (1) stain; and/or (2) require excessive wiping down to look good.

Regarding stains -- will water spots show? What about wine or grease stains?

Regarding the wiping down -- I'm fine with having to do annual sealing or using special cleaning products. What concerns me is the everyday wiping down of the countertops. It is true that everything shows?

Thanks for the guidance!
