How to Clean an Old Dirty Marble Floor


1.Sweep or dry mop the floor to remove surface dust and dirt.


2.Mix 3 tablespoons baking soda and a generous squirt of dishwashing liquid to 1 quart of warm water. As an alternative, use a commercial stone cleaner.


3.Fill a bucket with plain tap water.


4.Dip a soft cloth, nonabrasive sponge or soft-bristled scrub brush into the soapy water and scrub the floor. Rinse the sponge or brush frequently in the plain water, emptying and refilling the container when the water becomes dirty.


5.Measure 1 cup diatomaceous earth, plaster, powdered white chalk or talc. Add water to the powder, stirring constantly, until the paste is the consistency of cake frosting.


6.Wet the stained area with distilled water, and spread a thick layer of poultice paste over stains.


7.Cover each stain with plastic wrap, and tape all the way around the edge with masking tape.


8.Leave the poultice on until dry, approximately 24 to 48 hours.


9.Remove the plastic wrap and wipe the poultice away with a wet cloth or sponge.


10.Apply a commercial stone sealant according to the package directions.
