Working with marble countertops in Roanoke, VA, we know that taking care of marble can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Luckily at Artisans of Stone, we’ve picked up a couple of key tips and tricks over the years. With that in mind, here is our essential marble care guide.

Everything You Need:

  1. A recommended sealer
  2. Spray bottle
  3. Gentle non-abrasive dish soap
  4. Soft, absorbent towel
  5. Dish cloth or cleaning rag.


  1. Using the dry dish cloth, lightly dust any crumbs or particles off your counter.
  2. Get the spray bottle and add a tablespoon of the dish soap. Don’t add acid such as lemon juice because it will erode the stone. Shake the solution gently.
  3. Lightly spray the countertop.
  4. Let it sit for about a minute, then wipe it off of the counter with the wet dish cloth.
  5. Dry the countertop off with a towel and buff it immediately after with the absorbent towel.
  6. Enjoy your clean counters!
