Marble surfaces

My safe recipe for removing marble stains.

I find that this simple approach works well for maintain the cleanliness of my marble surfaces without causing any damage. It’s important to remember not to use any abrasive cleaners or scrubbers on marble, as it can easily scratch the surface.

In addition to regular cleaning, its also important to protect your marble surfaces from potential staining. Using coasters for drinks, placing mats or trivets under hot dishes, and quickly wiping up any spills can help prevent stains from setting in.

I want to share with you my little recipe to help keeping my marble surfaces clean and cared for.

Ingredients:

  • Baking soda
  • Water
  • Soft Cloths

Instructions:

  1. Start by making a paste with baking soda and water. Mix equal parts of baking soda and water in a small bowl until you achieve a thick consistency.
  2. Apply the baking soda paste directly onto the stained area of the marble. Make sure to cover the entire stain with a generous layer of the paste.
  3. Gently rub the paste into the stain using a soft cloth. Use circular motions and apply gentle pressure to work the paste into the marble. Be cautious not to scratch or damage the surface.
  4. Leave the paste on the stain for about 24 hours. This time allows the baking soda to penetrate and lift the stain from the marble.
  5. After 24 hours, dampen another soft cloth with water. Use this cloth to gently wipe away the dried baking soda paste.
  6. Rinse the cloth and wipe down the marble surface to remove any residue or remaining baking soda.
  7. Inspect the satin to assess if it has been completely removed. If needed, repeat the process for stubborn or deep stains.
  8. Once the stain is removed, wipe down the entire marble surface with a clean, damp cloth to ensure all residue is gone.

Remember, prevention is key to maintaining the beauty of your marble. Avoid placing acidic substances like citrus fruits and vinegar directly on the marble to prevent future stains. Additionally, always wipe up spills immediately to prevent them from penetrating the surface.

Note: While this recipe is generally safe for most marble surfaces, it is always recommended to test the mixture on a small, inconspicuous are first to ensure it does not cause any damage or discoloration.
