Marble Countertop Care
One thing we as homeowners can all agree on is that bathroom vanity countertops or kitchen marble countertops can be pricey investments, nevertheless, they are extremely worth it! Marble stone is one of the most dazzling natural stone countertop options in the world! Its beautiful aesthetic separates it from the rest. Protecting your marble countertop against stains or even etching can take some effort but it most certainly is not a hard task for homeowners to master!

The reason we recommend sealing your marble countertops is that it repels staining liquids or staining agents. Sealing does not make this natural stone proof of stains so you still have to be careful! You want to watch out for acid like products such as vinegar, lemon juice, citrus liquids, and tomatoes because they will etch your marble. Do not let them sit on your countertops, instead look for a butching board.
2. How To Clean Marble
How to clean marble is a very popular question that is searched for on Google on a monthly basis. Many homeowners wonder but do not know the proper way to clean their marble countertops without staining or etching the stone. Stay away from cleaners that are abrasive or acidic. If you are looking to get rid of harsh stains then you may want to consider using poultice paste. You take the paste and spread over the stain on your marble countertop and them cover it with plastic wrap. The plastic wrap should be sealed with a kind of painter’s tape. After it dries for about twelve to twenty-four hours, you can wipe it off with a dampened cloth. If the stain is not coming off then continue trying this method.
