Marble Care

How to clean and care for your marble slab and other porous stone materials.

Simple routine

Step 1 – Clean the marble surface
For daily cleaning – Spray Restoring Marble Cleanser directly on the surface and wipe with a damp cloth. You can use our linen cloth to your advantage, but any other cloth you have at home is also fine. Be careful to wipe the worktop completely dry after cleaning.

Step 2 – Wax and polish the marble surface
Apply marble wax in circles over the entire surface using the supplied sponge. When the surface is completely covered with wax, wipe off the wax and polish with a dry and soft cloth. The wax provides good protection and the surface becomes more resistant to stains from various liquids.

Maintenance tips for marble and other porous stone surfaces

Marble is porous and an absorbent stone. This makes it more vulnerable to staining from harsh cleaning products and spills

Always use mats and cutting boards and wipe up any spills immediately.

Avoid coffee and acidic liquids on marble, such as vinegar, tomato and citrus fruits such as lemons, limes and oranges, but also in wine and carbonated drinks. These liquids are corrosive to your marble and can contribute to stains and damage to your marble slab.

Always use a pH-neutral marble cleaner on your marble to prevent discoloration. Harsh cleaners will roughen the surface and make it a magnet for dirt that begins to collect in the pores of the stone and stain the surface.

Impregnate the surface with marble wax regularly and effectively protect it against unwanted water, as well as grease and oil-based stains and dirt.
