Procedures to Clean Marble Sinks

Updated:2014-01-09 13:53:57
Marble sinks come in a wide selection of styles, shapes and colors. They add an unmistakable note of elegance and sophistication to your home. But marble is a porous stone, which means it picks up dirt and stains easily, making it difficult to keep your sink sparkling. To clean a marble sink, you must choose cleaning agents with care because the porosity of marble makes it especially susceptible to damage. Always avoid any cleaner that is even slightly abrasive or that contain acid. Both abrasiveness and acidity are common in commercial kitchen and bathroom cleaners.

Instructions as follows:

                                                   

Firstly, pour 1/4 cup of liquid detergent onto a soft sponge or cloth.
Secondly, sprinkle 1 tbsp. of baking soda on top of the detergent.
Thirdly, rub the sponge or cloth all over the sink, rinse with warm water, and dry the sink with a towel. The soap scum will be gone.
Fourthly, wet the stained area with distilled water.
Fifthly, make a poultice by cutting some paper towels small enough to cover at least 1/2 inch around the stain. Make a 6- or 8-layer stack. Dampen enough clay (attapulgite or kaolin, for example), chalk, diatomaceous earth, talc, or methyl cellulose to make a paste about the consistency of peanut butter. Make enough of the paste to cover the top paper towel on your little stack; the paste should be 1/4-inch thick.
Sixthly, apply the poultice to the stained area (paste side down) and cover it with plastic wrap. Tape the edges of the plastic wrap to the marble sink all around to hold the poultice in place and keep it wet long enough to work.
