Since marble is thicker than other natural stones, such as granite, it’s more susceptible to staining from spills and cooking. Moreover, spots bring about water splashing across the sink. Otherwise wiped up immediately, water stains and difficult water accumulations occur, leaving unsightly stains. With diligence, you may keep your marble countertops clean and sparkling.
Scrub water spills from marble countertops immediately, using a paper towel or soft cloth. If left to air dry, then spots result.
Blot wine, soda, juices and other liquids from the surface with paper towels. Avoid rubbing or wiping these liquids to prevent spreading stains. Flush the area with a solution of mild dish soap and water. Rinse several times and dry with a soft towel.
Moisten a dry cloth with warm, distilled water and wipe the countertop for daily touchups. Always dry marble countertops with a soft cloth.
Eliminate more difficult stains and water stains with a thick paste of baking soda and water.
Rub the paste into the stain with a soft cloth. Cover the region with plastic wrap for 24 hours.
Wash the paste away with clear water. Dry with a soft cloth.
Buff hard water accumulations using 0000 steel wool. Wipe the deposits from the surface with a moist cloth. Dry thoroughly.
