A marble pastry board can be used for a variety of kitchen activities but is most commonly used for preparing bread and pastry dough. Marble is ideal for this because its cool surface prevents the dough from sticking. A pastry board made of marble is the most expensive, so it's important to care for it correctly.

Things You'll Need

  • Rag
  • Cloth
  • Cleaner
  • Marble polisher
  • Marble sealant

Clean the marble pastry board after each use. Wipe down the pastry board with a damp rag. Dry the pastry board with a cloth.

Use a cloth to wipe down the pastry board with a neutral cleaner, such as acetone, if it becomes stained. Stains can come from a variety of sources, including butter, which is often used in baking. Dry the pastry board with a cloth after applying cleaner.

Polish your marble pastry board on a regular basis to maintain the board's shiny appearance. Marble polishing products are available at home improvement stores.

Apply a protective sealer to the marble pastry board once a year. This helps prevents stains, and it improves the pastry board's appearance. Sealers for marble can also be found at home improvement stores.

Don't damage the pastry board. Marble can easily break (or chip) when it is dropped. Avoid scratching the surface with a knife or other sharp object.
