Dust the surface once or twice a week with a soft cloth. Marble stains very quickly, especially if a liquid is allowed to sit untouched for a period of time. Clean up orange juice, coffee, wine, and other drinks (or food) with strong pigments immediately and rinse with a clean, damp cloth. Don’t leave any water on marble surfaces, as this could stain.
Clean as gentle as possible, never use abrasive cleaners or dusting sprays. Wash the marble periodically with a cloth dampened with lukewarm water, and, if necessary, a bit of mild dishwashing liquid. Don’t scrub but run the cloth over the surface, making a circular motion in the spots that need a little extra pressure. Remove the soap with another damp cloth and wipe the marble dry.
Use a chamois after cleaning, to dry and shine your marble at the same time. This is the gentlest way to shine your marble. Commercial marble polishes also work well. If you choose to use one, be sure it is specifically intended for use on marble, since certain chemicals can harm marble. To maintain the stone's luster, regularly apply marble polish.
