Marble, Limestone & Travertine  Care and Maintenance

  • All food stuffs and toiletry spills should be wiped up immediately.
  • Only use a PH neutral based cleaner for all cleaning applications such as Methylated Spirits or Rejuvenator Cleaner available from The Marble Man.
  • We recommend Rejuvenator Cleaner, which is compatible with our sealer and will not affect any Guarantees.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners such as Ajax or Jif.
  • Always test a new cleaning product on a small area (out of sight) for any etching and/or discolouration.
  • Extreme care should be taken with these soft stones as they will etch quickly from acidic liquids.
  • Even after sealing, the stone will chemically react with acidic liquids such as wine, fruit juice, cola, fruit, beetroot etc.  The result can be a noticeable discolouration and a dull etched surface.
  • Be very careful when using lemon juice, vinegar or other acidic and alkali products on your marble top.
  • Hairspray, perfumes, toothpaste, mouth wash, soap and nail polish remover can all etch vanity tops.
  • Please use a tray or container plate to hold your toiletries.
