    Dust-mop or use a microfiber duster to sweep marble floors or dust marble counters frequently to keep dirt from building up in the first place. According to the New York Landmarks Conservancy, this is the simplest and most cost-effective way to keep marble clean.

    Wipe up spills immediately to keep them from sinking into the stone and possibly leaving a stain.

    Wash or mop your marble with clean warm water and a cotton cloth or string mop. Use the least amount of water necessary --- wring the cloth or mop as tightly as possible before use. Dry the marble immediately after mopping to prevent a residue.

    Mix a tablespoon of castile soap or vegetable-based dish soap with a quart of warm water and wipe or mop the surface to remove more serious dirt. Rinse with warm, clean water and dry immediately. (See References 2, p 19)

    Have your marble professionally honed and buffed with wool to maintain its luster and stain-resisting capabilities. The frequency of this type of maintenance varies depending on the amount of wear the surface gets.

    Warm water, baking soda and dish liquid should do the job for you.
