Marble slabs are used in many areas of the home, from tables to countertops and kitchen worktops. Since food and other elements typically are in contact with the marble on a regular basis, you must clean the marble slab regularly. You should use a mild cleaner that keeps the marble intact and undamaged while also being strong enough to kill bacteria.
Things You'll Need
- Spray bottle
- Dish soap
- Stone soap
- Dish cloths or sponges
- Dish towels
Dust the marble slab with a dry cloth or sponge, and wipe with a damp cloth or sponge if needed to remove residue that a dry cloth alone cannot remove.
Spray stone soap over the marble slab on occasion, and again wipe off with a damp sponge and dry with a dishtowel.
Mix 1 tsp. dish soap and 3 cups warm water in a spray bottle to provide a more thorough cleaning every 3 to 4 months.
Spray the soapy water over the entire marble slab, and wipe off with a damp dishcloth.
Dry the marble slab with a clean dishtowel.
Tips & Warnings
- Clean up spills immediately, especially acidic substances, such as juices, which can etch the marble.
