I have a white marble table top and it has both stains from food and marks from coffee cups and place mats. How do I remove them? Also, I need to know a safe inexpensive way to polish the marble.

I feel I must tell you my horror story;
My mother-in-law left us a beautiful Italian (yes, imported) marble table when she died. We tried to be extremely careful, however, something caused cloudy spots to appear. I looked up anything and everything and tried several so-called gentle solutions. Not only did they not fix the problem, they tended to make it look worse! In desperation we went to a marble works company and they told us the only way to restore marble is to let a professional do it. I have to agree with him. Since we are on a fixed income we cannot get the work done for $500 + dollars! Instead, we have had to cover it with a tablecloth. (11/04/2006)
My horror story; I took my German Marble top cabinet to a German stone handling shop. They were unable to remove the stain and polishing did no good. Good luck (10/16/2008)
