What’s the best way to clean marbles?
1. To begin with, one of the easiest methods to get rid of water stains from marble is using commercial cleaning products available in the market.. Remember to use a soft cloth to remove the stain and clean it in a circular motion. Finish it up by using a polishing powder to keep the marble lustrous and shiny.

2. In this second method, we use baking soda to clean the water stains. As baking soda is an alkaline powder and mildly abrasive, it works as a safe agent to remove the stains from the marble surface. Create a thick paste by mixing water and baking soda. Apply the paste on the stain and rub it in a circular motion to cover the entire spot. Spread plastic wrap over that area and let it sit for another 24 hours.

3. Another super agent to remove stains is the use of hydrogen peroxide. As it is an oxidizer and a bleaching agent, it removes stains effectively. Sprinkle a decent layer of cream of tartar on the water stain and add enough hydrogen peroxide to form a thick paste. Rub the mixture on the stain with a cloth using a gentle scrubbing motion. Cover with paper towels, and let it sit for about half an hour. Use a clean and damp cloth to wipe away all residue.
