Check out places like Lowe's or Home Depot and even your local Ace Hardware for 'marble polishing paste' or 'marble polishing kits'.

I bought a new bathroom vanity with a marble countertop and it's getting water marks on it. Does anyone know how to clean it?

We used to clean our living room marble tabletops with toothpaste. I think it was like a baking soda toothpaste. Been many years ago.

I have white spots on my new marble vanity that look like it is deep in the marble.
It looks like the marble has faded, but it also feels a little rough. It looks as if something was sitting on it and left a ring.

I also have marble vanities (black) and have the water marks. I did some research and found that the water actually etched the surface. I have not found anything to fix the problem. I wipe the surface with marble polish to try to prevent more damage, I think it helps. I don't know why they use marble in the bathroom if it is so sensitive to water. (10/25/2007)

Sometimes a small amount of cooking oil rubbed in can help disguise it. (10/26/2007)

Marble is also affected by acids, so if someone was cleaning with vinegar or CLR, that could have cause the damage. I don't think there would be a way to fix it, but perhaps the marble polish mentioned might help.
