How do you remove stains from limestone?

We moved into a home with a limestone hearth that has dark gray circular stains. Have been unable to remove them. Any suggestions?

    First vacuum as much dust as you can since it will make a huge mess when you add water. Then wipe the limestone with a mixture of dish soap and water (just a little soap to a full bucket of water). Wipe it down with a soft cloth like an old t-shirt. Keep wiping until it is clean. DON'T use steel wool or anything abrasive since it will permanently scratch. If this doesn't work, buy a stone cleaner from the home improvement store.... but try the dish soap first.
