Top Marble Cleaning Tips

Preventative measures. When you have guests over, use coasters under all glasses, especially if they contain alcohol or citrus juice. This will protect your furniture from getting wet or stained. You can also place hot dishes on trivets to avoid damaging your table or countertop.

Protect against grit. Frequently mop your marble floors with a clean, non-treated dry dust mop. Place slip-resistant mats or area rugs within and outside the entrances to keep tracked-in dirt at bay. If you're using a vacuum on marble flooring, be sure that the attachments and wheels are in perfect working order; worn equipment might scratch the marble floors.
Clean up spills. If you spill something, blot it with a paper towel instead of wiping it. This will help stop the spill from spreading. Then, flush the area with a mix of water and mild dishwashing soap. Rinse it several times to clean it. Dry the area thoroughly with a soft cloth. If necessary, repeat these steps.

Don't use harsh cleaners.
Never use abrasive scrubbers or rough-woven fabric on marble. Avoid products containing lemon juice, vinegar, or other acidic substances that will dull or etch marble surfaces. Stay clear of scouring powders and abrasive creams with traces of hydrofluoric acid (HF); they will harm marble. Simple stone soap and a light stone cleaner will do the trick.

Safest Cleaning Products For Any Marble Surface

Below is a list of marble-safe products that can be used daily to clean marble countertops, marble floors, and other marble surfaces.

pH Neutral Soap and Water
Warm water and mild dish soap are one of the easiest and most effective ways to keep stone surfaces clean. Avoid cleansers with acidic ingredients like lemon juice or lime, since they can damage your stone surfaces.

When you're done cleaning your marble surface, it's a good idea to give them a thorough rinse with clear water to remove soap scum, which might leave a film and dull the shine of the marble surface.
A clean, dry, microfiber towel should be used after cleaning to prevent any water spots from developing and to prevent etching.

Lithofin Easy Clean
Lithofin easy clean is a safe and effective way to clean marble surfaces. This marble cleaner has a pH-neutral formula that will not damage or etch your marble countertop. Additionally, it is gentle enough for daily use and will not strip away the polished finish.
To use, simply spray on the affected area and wipe away with a clean cloth. For best results, use it as part of a regular cleaning routine.

Fine Steel Wool
Fine steel wool is a good option for cleaning marble surfaces because it is gentle and will not damage the stone. Additionally, it can be used to remove stubborn stains or buildup.
To use, simply rub the affected area with the steel wool in a circular motion. Be sure to rinse the area thoroughly when you're done to remove any residue.

Hydrogen Peroxide
No matter how well you take care of your marble countertops, sometimes you will find stains. If this happens, there are ways to clean them more thoroughly. If the stain is on the marble surface, a solution of 12% hydrogen peroxide can help get rid of it.
Be careful about applying this on darker marble, it may leave white marks on darker natural stone.

Baking Soda Paste
If stains penetrate the sealant and enter the porous stone of your countertop, you may have to try to remove them. A baking soda solution is the most effective way to do so. Simply add water to baking soda until you obtain a thick, creamy texture.

Finally, apply the paste to the discolored area of the countertop, wrap it in plastic wrap, and tape down the edges. Allow up to 24 hours for the paste to work before wiping away with a razor blade and clean away any residue.

You may repeat the procedure if any stains remain. Stubborn organic stains, or cooking oil stains on the other hand, might require expert stone care treatment.

Microfiber Cloths
You also need to use the appropriate tools in order to properly clean your marble counters. Sponges are useful, but microfiber cleaning cloths provide better results.
These high-end rags not only help to remove dirt and germs, but they also absorb more liquid, so you won't be left with water stains on your polished surfaces.
Microfiber cloths are a good choice for cleaning because they hold up to more use and are gentle on surfaces. They also reduce bacteria.
