Marble and Travertine Cleaning Recipe?

Silver Post Medal for All Time! 297 Posts

To clean marble and travertine, use Dawn liquid dish-washing detergent as a general cleaner. To remove stains, make a paste of 1 Tbsp. cornstarch and 1 tsp. of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Cover the stain and allow paste sit for about an hour. Remove the dried paste, rinse with clear water and buff dry. To make marble and travertine shine, buff with dry cornstarch and a soft, clean cloth. Never use products like Lime Away, ammonia, lemon juice, vinegar, bleach, or Windex on these surfaces as they will dull their shine over time.

Anything acidic, like Lime Away, vinegar, lemon juice, will dissolve the marble, not quickly, mind you, but over time. This is why it dulls the shine.
