Clean marble regularly
- Lukewarm clean water in a bucket
- Soft cloth
- Green soap
- A dry soft cloth
Put some green soap in the bucket with lukewarm water. As an alternative to the soap, you can also use baking soda. Don't exaggerate, if you keep the table well you don't need much soap or soda.
Wet the soft cloth and gently make circular movements over the tabletop. Rinse the cloth regularly in the bucket. When you see that the water is getting darker in color, make a new bucket with clean lukewarm water and the cleaning agent.
Note: Do not use scouring pads or other products that can scratch.
Have you caused a stain on a marble surface? Then it is most important that you take immediate action and do not let the stain set in. To make stains disappear you need the following:
- Clean water
- Natural detergent, such as baking soda
- Plastic or cling film
- A soft cloth or sponge (not an abrasive sponge)
- A dry cloth or chamois leather
- A portion of patience
- Wet the stain with water.
- Make a paste of clean water and baking soda. You can also make a paste of water, flour and mild detergent.
- Cover the stain with the paste and cover it with a piece of plastic or cling film.
- Leave the paste on for at least 24 hours and then remove it with a wet cloth.
- Dry well with a dry cloth or chamois leather.
Tip: You can carefully try to remove a stubborn stain with a little hydrogen peroxide. That is simply available at the Etos or other drugstore. Be careful with it and try it on the underside of the top first to see how the marble reacts.
