Cleaning Marble - Etching, Rings and Damage on Marble Surface

Q. I have a marble countertop in my bathroom. In a panic I put comet on a stain and took the finish off. How can I get the finish back? Also, I have a few ring marks. How get I get rid of them. Thank you Evelyn

A. If the damage to the surface is not too severe, you can repair it yourself using a good quality marble polishing powder or compound. If the damage is severe - you can feel the roughness with your fingertips -- or the area is large, you will want to hire a professional stone restoration contractor to repolish the surface for you.

You can purchase polishing powder or a polishing compound at Stone Care Central. To find a stone restoration contractor near you, click on Find a PRO.
