To clean marble use Fila floor cleaner.
If Fila floor cleaner is not available then use a soft moist cloth for cleaning on a daily basis. Mild detergents can be used to clean the surface of the marble when it appears too dusty. This will instantly give it a glow which will last with regular cleaning. Although Makrana marble doesn’t stain very easily, still Spills (gravies, milk, coffee etc) should be immediately cleaned up with a moist cloth.
For polishing the surface, regular car wax can be used. The instructions are as follows: –
- Take car wax little in your hand and Place it on the table surface.
- Take a soft muslin cloth and twist it into a bun.
- Gently rub the wax onto the surface of the marble in circular motion.
- Continue rubbing for 15 minutes or until the surface is evenly polished.
Polishing the marble table every 6 months in case of regular use (example dinner table) and once a year in case of irregular use (e.g. side table, coffee table) will ensure that the surface remains smooth.
While it can take rough use, it should however be handled with care.
Even though marble is a very durable stone, it still needs to be protected from certain household items to retain its pure whiteness e.g. harsh detergents, acids, paint etc. The protective finish we provide can prevent damage from general household food materials and products but regular polishing is advised for further protection.
Marble statues of animals and humans have long since decorated the many palace gardens of European palaces. Buildings such as The Taj Mahal and The Leaning Tower of Pisa have withstood the test of time. Thus, marble is a weather resistant stone and can be used outdoors. Marble tables with semi-precious stones should however be protected from direct rain and sunshine. They are an ideal garden furniture under the garden umbrella. Always place a sheet of glass on the marble table surface. It will protect the marble better.
The color may turn slightly yellow overtime which is perfectly natural for any kind of white marble whether kept indoors or outside. Yellowing is a property of the marble but Makrana marble resists yellowing much longer than other types.
