Removing Stains on Marble Countertops

My marble countertops in the bathrooms have turned quite yellow in spots. Any suggestions on how to get them clean again? I've tried everything from bleach to Zap. Please help.

To remove stains from stone countertops make a poultice with diatomaceous earth and water adding the remedy below for the likely stain.

Rust - Iron Out

Coffee and tea - Hydrogen Peroxide

Ink, magic marker, etc - Methylene Chloride

Oil - Ammonia or a degrease

Paint - Mineral Spirits

They say the most important thing is to blot the stain quickly and not to wipe it because it can stain a larger area. Treat it as soon as possible. Marble is porous.

The link below has more information on stone care and refinishing. The article is written for stone professionals so is a little hard to follow. Hope this helps.

Just read this the other day for removing stains from marble countertops. Use vineger and baking soda. - Betty

I don't know the answer- but NEVER use vinegar or anything else acidic on real marbe (its ok on cultured marbe). It will actually etch the surface!
