  1. Mix 1 to 2 ounces of stone cleaner with 2 gallons of warm water. Fill the second bucket with clean, warm water.

  2. Apply cleaning solution with a soft sponge or soft natural bristle brush. Use a vigorous motion to clean the marble tiles and pay extra attention to stained areas. Work in a small area at a time.

  3. Rinse cleaned area with a soft sponge dipped into clean warm water.

  4. Dry marble tiles with a soft, absorbent cloth.

Warning

  • Do not use squeegees or other tools containing metal parts that may come in contact with the marble tiles---metal parts will scratch the marble. Call a professional to remove rust stains or water spots. Removal of both of these types of stains require resurfacing of the marble tiles.
