Your product has been made by skilled craftsmen using only quality materials. Our high standards and care are seen in the durable beauty of this product. The following suggestions will help you maintain the splendor and character of your marble or granite.
Preserve the luster of your marble by an occasional cleaning and waxing. Use only liquid, non abrasive cleaners. (i.e. Dow “Scrubbing Bubbles” or Lysol “Tub & Tile cleaner”) Apply a light coat of non-yellowing wax and polish with a soft cloth. (A self-polishing / self-cleaning automotive wax such as “Rain Dance” works well.) DO NOT WAX TUB OR SHOWER FLOORS. A good cleaning and waxing before the first use of your product will give the best long term results. Rewaxing is not necessary after every cleaning. Daily shower products such as “Clean Shower” also work very well and will extend the time between necessary cleanings. Wiping down the product with a soft towel or using a squeegee after every use will virtually eliminate the need for cleaning. Remove hard water and rust stains with a mild vinegar and water solution followed by polishing.
