Stained marble top
« on: November 26, 2021, 01:12:05 PM »
As above.

Thought to drop this here because I've come to believe that the accumulative wisdom collected here well exceeds knowledge of things HiFi.

White marble table top. Has what actually looks like water stains on it. Despite heroic efforts just not coming off. Dr Google  and Nurse YouTube suggest many things ( Sunlight liquid, baking soda, granite cleaner etc etc etc ) none of which have been up to the task.

Any suggestions?

Once had a marble table that was also stained. Unfortunately, could not remove the stain. I could see on the edge of table that the stain had penetrated a couple mm. into the marble. Possibly some types of marble are softer.  :nfi:

Marble or granite? Marble is softer, so the stain could penetrate deeper.

You could try Marblelife, they restore marble and granite tops in situ.

Our current kitchen has Caesarstone countertops which are bloody awful - especially after having had granite in the old house.

I have successfully removed stains (Red wine bottle left overnight after one too many)  with Chemico Multi Purpose Paste (Pink tub).

Rub it on with the green scourer side of a sponge, not too hard. Slow circle motion, you should see the stain going away. Leave it for 5 - 10 minutes and then polish residue away and it should be good to go.
