Somehow (thanks, DH) lemon juice was spilled on the marble in my bathroom. It's etched. Does anyone have a recommendation to polish it?? I may kill him! Ugh!
Pricescope Upgrade/Maintenance Is Complete.
We still have a few things to iron out. If you see any bugs, issues or have any concerns, let us know here in this discussion.
and if you read the reviews here it looks pretty hopefulWhen a polished marble countertop has only a few etch marks, it’s often possible to restore the shine for $10 $15 by rubbing with a soft cloth and a paste made of water and a marble polishing powder, such as Miracle Sealants’ Water Ring & Etch Remover or M3 Technologies’ Majestic Etch Remover. However, it can take several long minutes of polishing to treat a single etch mark.
Yes same here. My DH is very much a neat freak but he warned me if we got marble he wasn't going to be wary of using red sauce, red wine, tomatoes, lemons, limes, etc. He needs to feel free to cook and experiment in the kitchen. Not the reason we ended up not getting marble because I wanted it anyway but the piece I wanted couldn't get here from Italy in the required amount of time. Long story and I wasn't settling re the marble. I wanted what I wanted so I opted for white quartz which I love. I am not into veins so I was super picky re the marble and it was hard (at that time) finding a non veiny marble I loved. I found one but it was in Italy!
what was lemon juice doing in the bathroom ? if i may be so bold as to politely ask (why don't the smilies work ) is there some beauty routine im missing out on ?Somehow (thanks, DH) lemon juice was spilled on the marble in my bathroom.

Thank you!!!! Nice to hear it works. I am always leery of online reviews so this really helps! These tops are too expensive for me to screw it up even more!This just happened to my bathroom marble last week from acetone polish remover. I bought something off amazon called Lustro italiano etch remover. Worked perfectly on my white marble and only took a minute to fix it. I was so relieved as it looked absolutely awful!
I agree @Tekate I love marble but never again. In my other house I bought a marble look quartz. I love it and it’s easy care. Some of them don’t look real..so I looked for quite some time untiI found one that looked very similiar to marble. I only put it on my island in Maryland. I’m not doing the kitchen there for a while but hated my countertops..When I redo the kitchen there I’m getting the same kind of quartz.This is why I won't have marble. There is so much that does a great job of looking like marble that I said no to marble. my nephew has it all over his kitchen in Brooklyn NY and it is a mess, 3 daughters and 1 baby son, it looks beautiful but is a bitch to keep up unless one accepts like the Italians the beauty of aging marble.
Lol, after DH blamed the dog, he suggested just letting it be and appreciate the character of it. I think not! It looks pretty bad to me but honing the whole thing may look better.@Gussie I have marble countertops in my kitchen! They’re a different kind than the typical marble but they are polished and do etch..Are your counters honed or polished? Honed marble will just patina and you won’t see the etch after a while. Polished marble will always show the etch. There are companies that can come and repolish your countertops. They are expensive..but if it really bothers you then you may want to do it. Some people will do it every few years.
I bought a piece of honed marble and use it as a tester in my other house. I make sandwiches on, a cup of coffee, etc. It will show a ring for a bit but eventually it disappears and it has a patina now. I LOVE LOVE LOVE white polished marble..but I would never do it again in my kitchen. I have bread boards and blotters to fix dinner on..I don’t worry too much anymore..They are gorgeous...but I still think it’s too much of a headache.Lol, after DH blamed the dog, he suggested just letting it be and appreciate the character of it.
