Limestone - ins and outs

We've purchased some limestone for our bathroom.

Uh-oh I hear you say.

Anyway, if I plan to use it I know that it takes special care and attention especially since it's in that specific room.

What I would like to know:
  • What kind of cleaner should be used. Specific brands would be good
  • best quality sealer to use
  • I plan to use prolite by custom building products - in white. This should be OK, correct?
  • Best thing for cutting the circles for the tub spount and shower arm

Anything else you can think of?

Take a look in our TYW Store. You'll find a link to the StoneTech Website near the right side of the page that explains a lot of what each item is used for.
  • Specifically for everyday cleaning, you can use Stone and Tile Cleaner
  • The sealer depends on whether you want to retain the natural look of the stone, or enhance its color.
  • That thinset is fine.
  • A holesaw meant for tile. A less expensive carbide grit holesaw that is meant for ceramic will buzz through that limestone pretty easy. A more expensive diamond holesaw will work well, but is overkill in the price department. If the hole is near a groutline, you can use the wetsaw to make a cut.

But I will ask if your floor (if you're using it on the floor) is up to the task of supporting natural stone. Check out the Deflecto as needed.
