What In The World Is Etching? It's surface damage to your stone... dull spots, swirls & rings. Acidic or abrasive products and cleaners will etch your marble. Products such as Scrubbing Bubbles®, Lime Away® and Magic Eraser® are simply too harsh!

Can I Use Windex?

You can use windex but it might etch your marble. There are quite a few different varieties of 'Windex' on the market. Some contain vinegar or ammonia... not something you want on your marble.


Can I Use Soap & Water?

Yes you can. It will eventually leave a grimy build up of soap scum. It's really hard to rinse away all that soap. This is more noticeable on the darker stones and also in bright lights. If you already have soap scum - here's a safe product to get rid of it!


Can I Use Plain Water With A Sponge?

Yes. No harm here. But you do want a safe product to really clean your stone.

Quick Note On Sponges & Scrubbies: DON'T use any green or brown scouring pads. The presence of silicon carbide grits in them will scratch your stone. You can safely use the sponges lined with a silvery net, or other plastic scouring pads.


Do I Have To Use Specialty Products?

No, you don't have to do anything. You should use products made for cleaning stone to avoid etching your marble, to keep it looking beautiful and to avoid future problems!
