Routine Care and Cleaning
Stone should be cleaned with water and a non-abrasive, mild, PH-neutral soap such as dish soap (like Dawn, Ivory, etc.) or a cleanser specially formulated for stone (these can be found at home improvement stores).
Apply with a soft cloth and warm water. Highly concentrated cleaners or soaps may leave a film and cause streaks. Do not use products that contain lemon, vinegar or other acids on marble, travertine or limestone. Rinse the surface thoroughly after washing with the soap solution and dry with a soft cloth. Change the rinse water frequently. Do not use scouring powders or creams; these products contain abrasives that may scratch the surface of softer stones like marble. A polishing paste is an optional material used to restore the shine to the stone surface.
This paste and other special granite and marble cleansers are available at all home improvement centers.
