Care & Cleaning of Cultured Marble

Care Do's

Routine cleaning with a soft sponge or cloth and a non-abrasive cleaner is all that is normally needed to give many years of trouble free service to your cultured marble products.

We recommend cleaning agents in the form of multi-purpose spray or liquid varieties such as Fantastic, Formula 409, or Mr. Clean that are common in the household cleaning section of most stores.

To maintain luster and make cleaning easier, periodic applications of paste wax may be applied. Mild abrasives such as automotive polishing compound will remove simple scratches and stains.

Periodic applications of a product such as Gel-Gloss can remove small scratches and will also shine the cultured marble surface. Gel-Gloss can be purchased from your local hardware store. Please see for further information.

Hard water build up and rust stains can be removed with a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar, followed by a fine polishing compound.

Mold and mildew can be removed with a diluted solution of chlorine bleach and water or with Lysol. Never let pure bleach come in contact with your marble. Hair dye and shoe polish can be removed by using polishing compound.

Minor surface scratches can be buffed out with a polishing compound. A professional cultured marble service technician should repair deeper scratches and all other major damage such as surface cracks and chips.


The use of hard abrasives (Comet, Ajax, Soft Scrub, etc.), cleaning pads, steel wool, and certain chemicals may cause serious damage, discoloration, or dullness to the surface of the cultured marble. Do not use Clorox or other Hypochlorite bleaches, Hydrogen Peroxide in any concentration, Drano or other Lye solutions, Sani-Flush or other sodium bisulfate compounds, paint strippers, Comet, Ajax or other abrasive cleaners. Nail polish remover or other harsh chemicals are to be removed immediately and cleaned with warm soap and water.

Do not place hot items on surface for long periods, such as, curling irons and cigarettes.

Do not use as a cutting surface. Do not use putty knives or scrapers of any kind to remove debris from your cultured marble. This will scratch the marble beyond repair, and may result in the need of replacing the item.

All high acidic liquids such as urine, sodas, chlorine bleach, etc. will stain marble beyond repair if allowed to stand on the marble. If these spills occur, remove plastic covering, if applicable, and flush with water immediately, then clean. Keeping your tub, shower pan, and vanity tops covered during construction will help prevent these problems.

Never allow the water temperature to exceed 140 degrees at any time.
