I'm not sure if you can see where the stain is, but perhaps you can. Does anyone know of a way to get a wine stain out of a marble floor?
Also, does anyone know how to get stains out of faux marble?

    How to Remove Organic Stains from Marble Surfaces

    Stains from coffee, tea, wine, foods and other organic substances are pink to brown in color and relatively easy to remove. Mix a few drops of ammonia with 12% hydrogen peroxide to spot clean the stained area. However, be careful when using this method on darker stones as the hydrogen peroxide can lighten the color of the marble.

    Marble is basically compressed limestone. Any acidic cleaners will etch, dull and stain the surface, including vinegar, citrus cleaners, and lime/calcium cleaners.

    If you are trying to remove an old stain, create a dense paste of more baking soda and less water. Then place the paste over the stain, allowing it to function for a few minutes. After that wipe off the baking soda paste. If it is needed you can repeat the procedure until the stain vanishes.

    If the stain is persistent and is still there you can try removing it with ammonia solution. Make the area of the stain damp with 10% ammonia, diluted in water. Ammonia is knows as a base solution, so it is suitable for removing stains from marble.

    The final stage of the stain removal us rinsing. Rinse the solution from your marble well to eliminate any residue, left from the cleaning ingredients on it.

    I advise to use gloves when removing the stain with ammonia. They will protect your hands. Ventilate the room, in which you use ammonia for removing stains, because it is toxic.

    Thank you very much. I will certainly try this. Will this also work on faux
    marble?

      Yes it should. Faux marble you can also use a paste of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda.

    I have used baking soda paste, rinsed and followed by peroxide on a cotton ball. Don't let the peroxide sit too long or it may "bleach" the marble. Repeat if necessary. It's best to get on it right away and to take your time.

    Hi there, create a dense paste of more baking soda and a little bit of water. Apply the paste to the stain and leave for a few minutes before wiping it off. You may need to repeat until the stain vanishes. If it’s a tough stain try removing it with ammonia solution. Dilute the ammonia with water 1 part ammonia to 10 parts water. Test in a small spot first. Rinse the solution from your marble well to eliminate any residue, left from the cleaning ingredients on it and wear gloves.
