How to Remove Lemonade Stain From Marble

Q. I have marble tabletop with a large lemonade stain. I found you via YouTube, and am having difficulty locating your app by name search. Thank you for helping me and so many people out there with stone staining issues.

A. Thanks for contacting us. Here is the link to our stain management application Unfortunately, you may be dealing with more than just a stain, because the acids in lemon will etch polished marble. A stain is a discoloration, while an etch is chemical damage to the finish. Regarding the stain, try cleaning the discoloration with cold water and a mild detergent. If the stain remains, apply a poultice of poultice powder, such as diatomaceous earth or flour, and 20-50% hydrogen peroxide. This high-strength hydrogen peroxide can be found at a local beauty supply store. For further instructions on mixing and applying a poultice, including a How-To video, please visit If the surface is etched, re-polish using a quality marble polishing compound, available here If the etching is very deep, re-honing and polishing by a professional restoration contractor may be necessary.
