Looking for a marble cleaner that won't drain your wallet? Then, look no further than your pantry – baking soda is the answer.

What You Need:

  • Baking soda
  • Water
  • A rag

What You Do:

Rub baking soda into the marble with a damp cloth. Then, rinse with water; towel dry; and you're done!

Why This Works:

Baking soda is a light abrasive and a natural disinfectant, so it's tough on stains and germs.

Benefits of Cleaning with Baking Soda:

  • inexpensive
  • no harsh chemicals
  • effective sanitizer
  • effective stain remover
  • effective deodorizer
  • won't etch marble

Warnings:

1) Clean up spills immediately to avoid staining or etching

2) Do not use vinegar, lemon or other acidic substances to clean marble – this can lead to etching
