However, cultured marble care is a part of everyday life for many of us, especially if we are fortunate enough to enjoy this high end feature in our homes.
There are so many beautiful marbles available today that it would be a shame not to enjoy them simply because you were intimidated by their care. Also, many homes that are being sold not come with cultured marble already install. That is why I am pleased to offer a few pieces of sane advice on how to clean cultured marble.
How To Clean Cultured Marble That Is Not Stained
You can always use a soft cloth and any nonabrasive cleaning for cleaning cultured marble on a daily basis. The cleaners must be label “nonabrasive” because marble is a very soft stone and easily scratched. Even the gentlest abrasive will dull the shine of otherwise beautiful marble.
Good cultured marble care given on a daily basis will prevent you from having to deal with the bigger problems of staining and damage.
Cultured Marble Cleaners
While window cleaners also make great cultured marble cleaners, you can also use any sanitizing product that you normally use in your bathroom, as long as it is nonabrasive. There are also a number of specially formulated cultured marble cleaners available on the market. You can check your local supermarket or department store for these.
How To Clean Stains on Cultured Marble
When it comes to cleaning cultured marble that has become stained, you need look no further than your medicine chest or vanity table. Nail polish remover containing acetone will be a great job removing severe stains that nothing else will clean. You can also clean stains on cultured marble caused by hard water deposits or rust with any cleaner specially designed to remove those stains. Just be sure to rinse it thoroughly and wipe it well to prevent damage.
Now that you understand how to clean cultured marble, I hope that you will be able to enjoy its beauty and elegance in your home for many years to come.Print This Article
