One of the things that makes most fall for marble tiles is their natural luster and lavish look. Yet, over time, this fades, requiring minimal upkeep. There are two types of cleaning to keep your tiles polished.
First, remove stains by way of poultice. We cover that in steps 1-6.
Second, remove etch marks through polishing. We cover that in steps 7 – 11.
- Hydrogen Peroxide
- Baking Soda
- A Cup
- A Paintbrush (Large)
- Plastic Wrap
- Marble Polishing Powder
- Clean, damp rag
- Make the Poultice
Make the poultice. Mix together baking soda and water in a glass cup or bowl. Add in the hydrogen peroxide and ammonia. Allow it to form a thick consistency. Make a larger amount for areas like floors with more stains.
- Soap and Water
Clean the stains first with soap and water. Dry, and then apply a light layer of water to the areas.
Apply the poultice.
Cover the area with plastic wrap.
- Allow to Sit
Allow to sit for about 2 days, until it’s hardened.
- Clean and Dry
Remove the wrapping, dampen with water, clean the surface, and dry
- Move onto polishing
As all steps, clean the area thoroughly first.
Then, wipe the etched area with your damp rag.
Sprinkle some of the marble polishing powder on top.
Follow the marble polishing powder instructions for buffing.
Once done, dry and reveal the shine.
