Cleaning Marble

Cleaning marble can be a real challenge. 


Beautiful marble is a soft porous stone. It can be scratched and pitted easily so be gentle when wiping or dusting marble surfaces. Although we like to advocate for vinegar as a great all-purpose cleaner, do not use vinegar and lemon as general cleaners on marble. Acidic cleaners will pit or damage marble. However, a small amount of lemon or vinegar will remove stains on a marble surface. Just don't allow these or any other acidic substances to sit on the marble for more than a minute.


When cleaning marble top counters or furniture use a soft cloth or sponge, and a small amount of liquid castile soap in warm water.


Cleaning marble floors is simple.
Simply damp mop first, then use one of the following three cleaners:

  • clear warm water
  • castile soap in warm water
  • a mixture of 1/2 gallon warm water and 1 cup of fabric softener



When you're done cleaning the marble, polish the floor while drying with a microfiber cloth, or an old soft cotton cloth. Attach cloth to a Swiffer mop for easy use.

Cleaning marble is marbelously easy! Please explore the rest of the cleaning tips section for more useful cleaning tips.
