How to Clean & Shine Marble

Marble is a thick stone that is used to construct some counter tops, floors and tables. While vinegar can be used to clean most surfaces, it should never be used on marble. Anything with acidic properties, like soda, fruit juices and vinegar, can strip the natural shine off marble. Use a gentle cleaning method that cleans marble and keeps it shiny.
