There are some basics that work well for all marbles

  • Always use cutting boards to protect surfaces from staining, and also knives from damage
  • Try to clean the surface of the stone as soon as possible and no spills and food debris remain on the surface
  • Try to use a gentle cleanser to lean the surface with warm water
  • Avoid using some natural cleaners containing lemon juice or vinegar. Because these are both too acidic to be used on natural stone surfaces and can destroy the surface over the years
