Marble Etching on Floor Around Toilet
Last Updated: 12/07/2016

Question: Hello, I'm wondering if your product will help with some etching that occurred around our toilet. We had a leak that was hard to detect and discovered it after this mark was left. I'm wondering if we can use your product to fix this ring. I imagine it is a combination of damage from water and urine. Thanks!

Marble Etch on Floor around Toilet

Answer: The etching is extremely heavy. I feel confident that a combination of products could restore it. The Lustro Italiano Etch Remover will bring back most, if not all of the shine. But it will take some elbow grease... I estimate it will take at least 30 minutes of working the etch to bring back a lot of the color. Due to the severity of it, I would also recommend our Tenax Ager product. Once the marble etch has been brought back the majority of the way and you see a lot of the color back in the marble floor, the Tenax Ager will give it that extra push to hide any etching that is still in the floor. Plus, it will add a really good sealer to the area, as no sealer is on the stone at his point. A great way to tell if the Tenax Ager is going to work, take water and wet the spot. If the wet look on the stone that the water created is the look and color you want, the Tenax Ager will permanently leave it that way. The combination of these 2 products will restore the marble etch around the toilet to the point that it will not be noticeable at all.
