If your marble's looking a bit lackluster, chances are it's begging for a cleaning - or, that you've over-cleaned it.
The important thing is this: Make sure you know the proper care and cleaning routine for this specialty surface - and follow it.
Dust or wipe dingy, dirty surfaces with a damp cloth.
Clean up spills as they happen.
Tackle the spots by sprinkling a bit of borax or baking powder on them.
Rub gently with a damp sponge or cloth.
Loosen the food and remove. Wipe clean with a damp, clean cloth..
Vinegar, often added as a cleaning agent, is acidic and will make your surface worse. Skip it.
This stone spots quite easily, and requires regular maintenance to retain its luster. Give it its due.
