How To: Clean marble and all-natural stone countertops

Our cleaning products are safe to use on all natural stones including marble, granite, travertine, limestone, onyx, and quartz. They can be used on polished, honed or any other stone surface.

Marble Care: Marble and any other calcite based stones such as limestone and travertine require special cleaning products to reduce the chance of etching. The use of incorrect products such as vinegar, Tilex, and any cleaning products containing acidic substances (lemon, citrus, etc) can etch calcite based stones. If this occurs, a Stone Restoration Professional will be required to restore the stone. Be sure any product you use on your marble is specifically designed for natural stone such as MB-5 Stone & More Multi Surface Spray Cleaner, MB-23 All That Oxy!
