Marble has been a symbol of splendour and refined taste since the ancient times. Being an exquisite choice for your kitchen countertops, this natural stone requires special care and attention to maintain its gleaming look for many years to come. If you have marble countertops in your kitchen, here are the steps that you need to follow to make them look like new again.
Proper maintenance prolongs the beauty and gleam of the marble countertop. All you need is a piece of soft cloth, a few drops of mild cleaning agent and warm water. Rinse the surface with warm water and cleaning agent, and wipe it dry with a soft clean towel. This helps in removing any accumulated dirt, grease or grime from the countertop.
Polishing marble countertops in a professional manner requires the use of specific techniques, appropriate polishing products, and state-of-the-art equipment. Alternatively, you can use a traditional method to restore of the gleam of your marble kitchen countertops.
This method involves mixing three tablespoons of soda with one quarter of water and applying it on the surface. Leave it sit for several hours. Then, wash it with warm water and wipe powdered chalk on the surface, rise again and dry the countertop with a chamois cloth.

Whether you choose to polish the kitchen countertops using traditional method or advanced techniques, don’t overlook to seal the marble. The sealant is capable of resisting moisture and protecting the stone against moulding and staining.
