Soapstone is a natural stone frequently used for kitchen countertops, bathroom vanity tops and chemical labs. Some people love soapstone because of its amazing smooth feel when you touch the soapstone.
Soapstone will scratch more easily than granite. If you happen to scratch your soapstone counters, the scratches can be easily hand sanded and polished with sandpaper. Sounds easy right? More information on how to care for Soapstone Countertops.
