How to Clean Marble Floors and Countertops
Marble is a beautiful material but it's not the easiest to keep clean. Did you know that you aren't supposed to us anything acidic on marble? Also, did you know that almost every cleaner is acidic.
How you clean your marble depends on what you are cleaning. Are you cleaning a stain? Are you just trying to clean your counters on a regular basis? Are you trying to get rid of etch marks (rings)? There are different methods to clean each.
How to Clean Stains
This is the hardest one, so we will start with it. Marble is a very porous stone and you can pull stains out using natural products, but it takes time. For this you will need to make a paste called a poultice.
A poultice that is suitable for marble is baking soda and water. Make it thick enough where you can smear it on the stain and cover it.

How to Clean Marble Floor and Counters
Regular cleaning of your marble floors should ONLY be done with products that are no acidic. Never use cleaners that contain vinegar. It can also damage or discolor marble if you use bleach.
In addition don't use lemon or any cleaner with an ingredient that has the word acid in it.
Target, Home Depot and Amazon all have cleaners that are made for marble. It might be a little more expensive, but it's worth the price if you have marble floors.
You can use a diluted ammonia on marble, but you need to be sure to rinse with water after. Use 1/2 cup of ammonia to 1 gallon of water.
